The Ultimate Summer Bucket List


After what felt like an entire decade of winter, spring practically came and went. At least summer is almost here, and hopefully we’ll be able to fully enjoy it. How about a summer bucket list to document what we’d like to do?

Unfortunately we are in the middle of a global pandemic (covid-19/coronavirus), and almost everything has been put on hold. Still, I wanted to share the ultimate summer bucket list of what we could be doing if this terrible situation had never come about. A girl (or boy) could still dream right?

Note: Though states are slowly reopening now, I encourage each and every one of you to enjoy your summer in the safest way possible .
