Summer Bucket List 2021

Spring is over and the summer season is in full swing! I've been thinking about some of the things that I'd like to do and accomplish over the course of it. I know that, in reality, I probably won't get to all of them, but having a list will certainly help me to focus on the season and remind me to enjoy it to the fullest!
