my summer bucket list

beachbucketThe end of summer is kind of like a death. Anyone who lives in a snowy cold climate knows what I am talking about. Winter lasts forever with it’s cold, snow, and clouded sky. When summer arrives, it is new life! Sun, warmth, and oh so many activities to do that there never seems to be enough time.

This summer I have things I want to do. And since I am craving the warmth of sun rays on this rainy day, I am going to make my list. So before summer kicks the bucket I want to…

  1. Go to one Utah location that I’ve never been too… Zions, Arches… doesn’t matter
  2. Play bocce ball in the lawn
  3. Plant my first veggie garden and have at least one thing grow and be edible
  4. Do an outdoor workout class… Tai Chi, yoga in the park, or swim aerobics
  5. Get a bike and take a long trip
  6. Run a 5k
  7. Get tattoo #3
