2016 Summer Manifesto!

I romanticize summertime, and I know I can’t be the only one who does. There’s something about summertime that excites me and ignites my languid side to get up and go outside. Even though outside is burning hot and will cause me to break a sweat simply from just standing. But, outside is where I want to be. Usually in the summer time I make a bucket list, and usually the list is incomplete by 85%. And because I am a woman of tradition I decided that this summer I will be making another bucket list. Hopefully that bucket list will be incomplete by 40% at the end of summer.

Here goes my list:
