Summer Bucket List

For the past few months we only had one thing on our bucket list – launch a new website. Well, WE DID IT! Now that we’ve proudly checked that off our list, we figured we could make a new bucket list full of fun and exciting summer adventures. We asked around the office what everyone wanted to do to compile the best summer bucket list out there and here’s what we plan on doing for the next few months:

1. Overcome a fear

We’re going to say that launching the new site counts as overcoming a fear. Check it out here.

2. Take a mini road trip

Grab a good group of friends and pick a destination. Nothing is better than road trip conversations, good food and your best friends.  

3. Make a sangria snow cone

4. Watch a sunset

Whether on vacation or in your hometown, there’s not a whole lot that beats watching the sun go down.

5. Drink something out of a fruit

Coconuts, pineapple, watermelon, oh my yummy!

6. Read a new book

Finding a good book is key to relaxing by the pool, in a hammock, on a boat or even during a summer rainstorm. Check out this year’s recommended summer book list. 

7. Do something for the community

8. Spend a day on the beach

19. Go to a drive-in movie
