Summer Bucket List 2020

Happy First Day of Summer! 🌞🤽🌻

It's been a while since I've done a bucket list. I skipped over winter and spring for sure and don't remember if I posted an autumn list or not. At this point it really doesn't matter. I'm just going to start where I'm at and move forward from here.

"...old things are passed away, behold, 
all things are become new..." 
(2 Corinthians 5:17)
