Summer " Bucket List" 2013 ...



Last summer seemed to fly buy ... It was over before it started ....
We were so busy with weddings, birthdays, Christmas's, engagements etc that we forgot to embrace the summer months ...

We forgot to spend time just as a family, to make memories  !

So this year, I have decided to make a "Bucket List" of things I want Erik to experience before summer is over ,

I always find when I put things in a list form, and break it down into manageable bites , its a lot less overwhelming than just deciding " we must have an awesome summer !!!"

I wish I had the space in my house to make a chalkboard like this one from { Little Miss Momma}
but for the moment our list is on notepaper on the fridge ... a girl can dream right ?


But its there ... in list form ... ready to be ticked off as we accomplish each thing

If your not excited for summer yet ... get ready ... you will be !
