Last year I made a summer bucket list too, I did about a third of the items on the list. Even though I did not accomplish doing all the things I wanted.. making the list did make me stop and really think of some things I DID want to do. I think because I wrote it down and purposed to do them.. I was more inclined to make the experiences happen! So I decided to make another bucket list for this summer. Some are repeats from last year, some are things I never got around to last year and the rest are NEW things that I want to do.
