My oh my… our 2020 summer bucket list is looking quite different than previous years. Anybody else out there having some sad thoughts occupying their mind of what could have been?? The planner in me had an entire lineup of camps and our beloved babysitter all ready for once the girls got out of school, but alas, sometimes things just don’t go quite as you imagined. Having said that, I am thankful for our health and time together and here we are, making the best of this crazy season of life and I have a feeling lots of you are in the exact same boat.
A few weeks ago, we met up with my beloved friend and oh so talented photographer Alli Golden for a sunset photo session in the fields of Franklin, right next to Arrington Vineyards. It was picture perfect and I was beyond thrilled to get some new images of my girls, just the two of them.
Goodness, she NEVER disappoints and I cannot wait to do this again very soon. Local Nashville friends… be sure to follow her via Instagram and/or Facebook to check out her next mini sessions just in time for summer: lavender fields on June 12/June 14, Americana minis [end of June/early July], and then back to school in early August.
Summer Bucket List
So, let’s quit the complaining and let’s talk about the good stuff AKA our summer bucket list to keep us occupied and excited. This is a super special list the girls and I sat down and worked on together. Things we want to do + action items they want to check off… they are at such great ages and we want to make the most of this summertime… so get crafty + creative with your own bucket list and make it count:
I’m already checking the calendar for when we can Canoe the Caney, take the girls to Cheekwood Gardens for an afternoon picnic + Chihuly art, visiting the Nashville Farmer’s Market for fresh fruit, veggies, plants and more, and of course plenty of opportunities for solo mommy and me daughter dates for each of my girls!
So tell me… what’s on your family’s summer bucket list this year??
