My Summer Bucket List

Since the unofficial start of summer is this weekend, I figured it was time to sit down and share my absolute must-do’s for the summer, along with a few things that I want to try for the first time.  
1. Spend the day at the lake. We live about an hour from Lake Erie, so this goes on my list every year. I would love to be there more often, I’m a total beach girl!
2. Fairs and festivals. I grew up in 4H, and my husband and I are 4H advisors, so if there’s a fair you can usually find us there. I love the atmosphere, and getting to see all of my old friends, and of course, the food!
3. Read! I just pinned a great summer reading list that I can’t wait to work my way through. I’ve already read some of these, but there are a few I haven’t heard of, you can check it out here. Two books that are definitely on my list are Wild by Cheryl Strayed and Top Secret Twenty-one by Janet Evanovich.
4. Camping. This is another thing that I would love to do more often! One of our favorite places to camp is near Ohio’s Amish Country, which also happens to be close to my brother in-law’s home, so we usually get out there at least once. Thank goodness because I need my fill of Amish cheese!
5. Learn to french braid my own hair. I have to get it long enough first, but I’ve never been able to do it, and who doesn’t want Katniss Everdeen hair?!
I’m sure there are more things that I would love to do, but I have a huge to-do list and I’m working all summer, so just a few fun things will have to do.  Whether you’re working or not, there is just something about summer that feels carefree, I can’t wait!
