Sweet summertime! The days get a little lazier, you stay up a little later, ice cream is perfectly acceptable every night after dinner and dips in the pool count as showering/bathing. There’s so many reasons I love summer. Below I’m sharing some ideas that are on my summer bucket list as well as a free printable Summer Bucket List with ideas to get you started.
My 2021 Summer Bucket List
Berry picking – The boys LOVE berry picking and obviously eating as they go! After strawberry picking, making strawberry shortcake is a must! My favorite version is my strawberry cheesecake trifle. If you’re local, we went strawberry picking at Stanton’s Farm in Selkirk, its a small family owned farm and the strawberries were delish! They will have blueberries in July too!
Camp outside with the kids – put up a tent in the backyard, make some glow jars (you can see my easy DIY here), eat s’mores and tell ghost stories. Rick and Maxwell did this last summer and had a “boys night” and Maxwell still talks about it, he thought it was the greatest thing.
Try an Aperol Spritz – believe it or not I have never had an Aperol Spritz and it sounds like the perfect summer drink. So it’s a goal of mine to try one this summer. My other favorite summer cocktail is my Paloma recipe.

Host a BBQ with friends – after the last year we’ve had, I’m ready to have some friends over, kick back on the deck and get to entertain. If you’re looking for an eye-catching meal idea that is sure to wow, check out my grilled steak charcuterie board.
Make a little road-side farmstand – last year I got into gardening and I would love to have a cute little roadside farmstand with some of my home grown veggies and flowers for people as they drive by. This year may not be anything fancy but I’m determined to give it a shot.
