life with caroline + carson… our 2020 summer bucket list

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.

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??

    Heal from my left knee replacement surgery I had last Monday. Hopefully plan a trip to the northern part of Michigan with our daughter at the end of July and a long week-end getaway with my husband at the end of August. Fingers crossed as so much else got canceled this year.
