Summer on the Brain: Bucket List

I have summer on the brain. It's probably because it's currently 45 degrees outside and rainy.  Maybe it's because I've gained (mumble mumble) pounds in the last few months.  More than likely it's because most of my friends and family live in Florida and California and I am already seeing photos of them on the beach.

The problem with summer is that it's never long enough.  Before you've even gotten a tan, Target has rolled out the Back to School carts. I have all of these great summer plans in June, and by August I've either forgotten or given up on most of them.  NOT THIS YEAR.  I am vowing, here and now, to make this summer count! I am going to make a SUMMER BUCKET LIST!

I turned to my BFF Pinterest for some summer bucket list inspiration:

I love this Summer Bucket List by Delia Creates.  She used clothes pins and a metal bucket.  I love how her little ones helped plan the itinerary!

Last year Autumn featured this awesome window turned chalkboard with her family's summer plans.

Here is a fun poster board idea by Raising Lemons for listing your summer plans.  These can be crossed out when complete.

Patricia at Good + Happy Day used popsicle sticks for her bucket list.

These ideas are definitely inspiring me to come up with a great summer bucket list of my own. Thanks ladies for being so creative!!

NOTE:  Before pinning any of the photos above, please visit the ORIGINAL SOURCE so that the authors may benefit from the views, and to make it easier for anyone who pins it to find the project details!  Thanks in advance!!!
