My Summertime Bucket List: 25 Things I Plan To Do Before The Season’s Over

We’re almost a month into summer which got me thinking about what I’ve done so far this season…

But it also made me think about all the things I would still like to do but haven’t had the time. I decided to create a summertime bucket list in the hopes of being able to complete these 25 activities before September comes along and it’s all about pumpkin picking and caramel lattes.

Watch some favorite summertime movies like Now and Then, Summer of Sam, and Very Good Girls.

2

Go in the jacuzzi at night.

3

Spend a Sunday trying new food at Smorgasburg LA.
