Summer Bucket List
In last week’s June letter to the editor, I talked some about my desire to live with intentionality. I want to do more than just let life happen; I want to actively captain the ship, so to speak.
Perhaps my vigor to live with intention has intensified with the birth of my daughter. Unbelievably, she turns one tomorrow. And I am seeing her develop such a sense of curiosity and adventure and interest in everything around her. So, I want to make the most of these moments. I want to create a treasure trove of memories with her. Memories of the big, bold, daring type, as well as memories of the small, quiet, special type. She bring such joy to my life, and I want to do the same for her.
With all that in mind, I’ve created a summer bucket list! Now, of course, the traditional use of the term bucket list pertains to a list of items one wants to accomplish or experience before dying. In this case, obviously, these are things I’d like to do this summer. Most are related to doing things with my daughter, but some are solely focused on me.
Side note: My friend Ali once called it a summer manifesto. I like that term. Whatever you call it, the point is to make one! So here’s mine…
Great read Carrie!
Happiest Birthday to your sweet Elle!
Ah thanks so much, Elizabeth! You’re the best.
