Summer Bucket List

Ahhh.. the beginning of summer. Its everyone's favorite time of year... toes in the sand, the smell of burgers on the grill, a refreshing drink in your hand-- it doesn't take much for summer to be great. A car ride with the windows down, late night fires with friends, and my personal favorite: floating in the ocean as waves crash around you.

While it's really the little moments of relaxation where you just exhale and feel content with life that really make summer great, there are a few things in particular that I think would really be the cherry on top of my ice cream cone this summer. With that said, here is my summer bucket list:


Buy a kiddie pool for my Dogs so they can be as happy and cool as this guy

I really think they'd enjoy it.

Spend an entire night outside stargazing

Just grab all the pillows and blankets in sight, bring my two fluffy goldendoodles with me for company, and any friends that feel like joining me. What could be more rejuvenating then a night under the stars?


Start a water balloon fight

Like, a massive water balloon fight. Lets be honest here, when was the last time you did that!?

Visit NYC and pretend to not be a tourist

I've been before, but always as a tourist. I want to grab a friend who knows where they are going, and pretend I belong for a day. After I live a day as a New Yorker, I'll return to Boston and still conclude that its the best city in the world, but NYC will have been fun.


Go Cliff Jumping

Okay, It doesn't have to be a huge cliff, a quarry or something. Really just a body of water to throw my body into from a big height. And, if I can find a huge slip and slide to speed up the process like that guy- even better!!

Go Pool Hopping

This is a summer favorite. Considering I don't have my own pool to swim in at 2 am, why not find some innocent, oblivious person's pool to borrow for a few minutes??

Bonfire on the beach

I have always thought this would be very fun, but it is also very illegal. Hopefully this summer I can find a place where this is legal and do it!

And finally,

Ride a Jet Ski

I remember riding them when I was little, but I am currently 20-years-old and have never manned a jet ski solo... I NEED TO DO THIS

I Didn't Know That I Would Lose My Best Friend To Her Boyfriend

I didn't know that you would stop doing the things that make you happy. The things everyone used to judge you for. You are the type of person who does things on YOUR terms and now they're on his.

As your best friend, all I ever want is for you to be happy. Because as best friends, we know exactly what makes the other happy. I know all your weird and quirky lingo. I know how much you hate certain foods and most of all, I know the things that are important to you in life.

With that being said, you can either choose to sulk over the fact that you're single or you can make the best out of Valentine's Day without even having one.

Here are a few ideas to celebrate the day:

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
