My Favorite Summer Bucket List Ideas!

Okay y’all, it’s about that time of the year where the weather is starting to warm up, & I cannot get summer off of my mind!! My whole website/ brand/ business is to inspire as many people as I can to live their lives as full as possible, & though I mainly focus on mental self-care, I also want to emphasize summer activities that are good for the soul!

I’ve realized that growing up, a lot of us are so focused on working, & just trying to make a name for ourselves, that we sometimes forget to do the things that make us feel the most alive. For me? I love when the weather starts to warm up, & getting back outside! Which is why I decided to share my Favorite Summer Bucket List Ideas including a free printable with y’all! Honestly, this has been an ongoing list since I was in middle school, & every year it just keeps growing! Check it out!
