Happy Solstice!

In a lovely bit of irony, thing are wet and dreary here in the Sunshine state on what is supposed to be the longest day of the year. Those of us who have lived in the state more than a few years are just rolling our eyes and shaking our heads. This is so apropos for our capricious little state, but in the spirit of the solstice, I wanted to share my summer bucket list with you guys. There is quite a bit to do as the days start to shorten once again.

  1. Go to the beach
  2. Swim in the ocean
  3. Look for seashells
  4. Buy a watermelon
  5. Have a cookout
  6. Make strawberry short cake
  7. Buy a summer hat
  8. Have a picnic
  9. Wear a sundress
  10. Build a sandcastle
  11. Wear flash tattoos
  12. Take a day trip somewhere new
  13. Eat as much summer produce as possible
  14. Have a summer movie day
  15. Eat a snow cone
  16. Dance in the rain
  17. Make friendship bracelets
  18. Play in a puddle
  19. Buy some over the top sunglasses
  20. Get ice cream from a local shop
  21. Watch fireworks
  22. Build a blanket fort and take a nap in it
  23. Watch the sunset

What’s on your summer bucket list?

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
