Summer is my favorite time of year, and I have a feeling that it will be here before we know it! I find that summer is the time of the year when the most fun happens. I love crossing items off my main bucket list, but I also enjoy making seasonal bucket lists as well. You can make these kinds of lists for an actual season or for a certain time period such as the school year or a vacation. I’ll be the first one to tell you that Bucket lists are a lot of fun to have, but it can be hard to come up with items that you want to put on your bucket list. I have put this list of sixty items together that will hopefully inspire you to write your own summer bucket list. Don't forget to add personal items to your own list. Such as spending time with a certain family member or celebrating your birthday. Also remember you can have just a few items on your list or a lot it's up to you. The most important thing is to have fun and have a great summer.
