Seasonal Bucket Lists

I’ve always loved the idea of summer to-do lists or bucket lists, but weekends always seem to fill up so fast and life just gets in the way, that before you know it it’s September.  With June just around the corner, I figured why not give it another try this year and each Friday I’m going to add a couple more mini-goals that are realistically easy enough to accomplish.  Like having mini celebrations in our backyard with personal bottles of sparkling wine in the middle of the week, just because — which I can happily check off the list. (Check! √)

Tie-dye something to wear this summer – We’re getting our backyard ready for bbq season so a set of colorful napkins or placemats would be fun and festive.  I also have a little white dress I would love to dip dyed in indigo.

Send snail mail to a friend – It takes a little more time to sit down and hand write a note which makes it feel all the more special.

Make homemade pickles – Whenever we buy cucumbers from the local produce store or farmer’s market I never seem to find enough uses for them before they go bad so I’d love to try out a homemade pickle recipe.
