We are just days away from the first day of summer, which also happens to be my BIRTHDAY! Does anyone else get really excited about birthdays or is it just me?! Summer is by far my favorite season for many different reasons, but I thought it would be fun to write out a summer bucket list because there are just too many things that I am dying to do this summer!
Go berry picking
Find a new farmers market to go to- doesn’t have to be close. Might be fun to take a day trip to a farmers market and pick up all the ingredients we need to make dinner for that night.
Find a concert I want to see and go- I am not a huge concert fan, but I do love the idea of going to an outdoor concert venue.
Try a new coffee shop in Detroit- so many cute spots downtown
Buy a grill and have lots of grill nights on our patio with Dean- he is quite the grill master, but all we’re missing is the grill right now at our new house.
Plan a trip (I am totally a planner and like to have things to look forward to).
Fall asleep in the sun
Eat LOTS and LOTS of watermelon- I’d love to find a good watermelon salad recipe and also a refreshing cocktail to make with watermelon- yum!
Get a hammock and hang it somewhere
Do a wine tasting of all summer white wines- I’m thinking Chardonnay
Actually plan something fun for the 4th of July
Make a summer playlist
Read a NYT Best Seller
Make our deck situation cute at the new house
Host a housewarming party at our new house for all our family and friends
Have a picnic in the park or just in our backyard
Take a cooking class with my mom
Learn how to make a good margarita- probably my favorite cocktail!
Take my dog to a lake in Michigan
Go visit my sister at school
Take a couple weekend trips with Dean and Riley
Pick a night to walk into town for dinner
Make homemade ice cream
Try a new workout class- SLT is coming to Detroit and I am SO excited
Organize our new house and finalize some decorations
Are any of these things on your summer to-do list? Do any of them jump out at you?
Happy (almost) summer, friends!
