I’m low key obsessed with picnics. I credit my college French professor for my love of them. They were a stand by of French Club and always involved my favorite things: bread, cheese, lemonade, fresh fruit, and hanging out outside. Sure enough, when I visited France with her and the club, our hosts gave us a very laid back picnic on the first day of summer. It’s one of my top three favorite memories and I swear I’m chasing the dreaminess of snacking under the Eiffel Tower every time I plan my own picnic stateside.
I’ve had this post ruminating in the back of my brain for months now. Alas, starting a new job at the beginning of the summer left me with my head spinning a little (read: a lot) and gave me next to no energy to write for pleasure.
So here we are, better late than never, sharing my summer bucket list. It’s probably overly ambitious considering our schedules have been insane all summer, but what fun is a bucket list you know you can check off in a week?
This post has been requested a few times and I figured what better way to kick off the 2019 blog posts than with an overview of simple, sustainable changes we can make this year! Whether you take on all five or go one by one, I hope this encourages you to start somewhere!
