Have Your BEST SUMMER with our FREE Bucket List Printable


Enjoy every minute of Summer with our FREE Summer Bucket List Printable

Summer-Summer-Summertime is almost officially here! June 21st begins a stretch of 94 glorious days of perpetual sunshine and memories waiting to be made.


I love summer, especially because our winters can drag on for-e-ver in the great white north. However, something terrible happens to summer when you become an adult. They no longer give you 3 months of continuous vacation! You can’t sleep in everyday and eat cinnamon toast crunch while watching Saved by the Bell re-runs.


Apparently your employer and your elementary principal are not on the same page.


So, you know what that means? As grown-ups doing all the adult-y things, we have to be more intentional about making the celebration of summer happen.

I’m all for spontaneity, but sometimes, you’ve got to schedule fun, otherwise, it just doesn’t happen.

Sometimes you’ve got to make life happen intentionally so it doesn’t just slip past you accidentally. And because those sunny 94 days can seem to move faster than most, we want to help your No Small Life capture every precious minute.


Whether you prefer to spend your free summer moments soaking up the sun or on road trips filled with unexpected adventure and beautifully cheesy 90’s playlists, we’ve got something for you that will help make your summer dreams a reality this year.




I’ve said it before, but its so true writing down your goals increasing their percentage of actually materializing by 42%!. So why not write down all the things you’d love to do this summer and increase their probability by almost ½.


(Yep, I just said probability. No worries, that’s the most “math-lete” I will ever get on this blog.)


Here to help you make your Summer Dreams a reality, I would like to present to you the “NO SMALL LIFE SUMMER BUCKET LIST!”

The Perfect 2015 Summer Bucket List. Make this Summer Awesome


Oooo. Ahhh. You can thank her graphic highness the uber talented Kaleigh Quinn. aka my sister.


 Fill it with all the Summery things you would love to make happen this year.

And no, they don’t have to be epic to be awesome! Some of the best summer memories are the simplest. Need a few to get your brain in gear?


How about flying a kite?! That one is topping my list this year, because guess what? I’ve never done it…I know. I’m not sure how I survived childhood either.


Also topping my list this year…


Farmers Markets

Summer Veggies

After Dinner Bike Rides


Berry Picking at a local Orchard


Go to the driving range with that cute hubby of mine, never mind that I’m a terrible golfer


Wear lots of sun dresses



Grill as many times as humanly possible

Healthy Grilling Recipes

Grilled Cod Spinach Salad with Grilled Veggies & Butternut Squash Fries

Make Popsicles


Run another 10k (my headband says “My Mascara Runs Faster than You”…so that’s motivation right there)

Brooksie 10k

Take Gunther for LOTS of walks

Doggy Mom

Explore a new downtown area



Picnic and playing catch in the park with this guy

Make a picnic easy with Whole Foods

How will you make the most of your summer this year? What are some of the things you are really looking forward to?

Regardless if they’re big or small, embrace them and celebrate them because they’re adding beauty to your No Small Life.


Busyness and to-do lists will try to creep in, I promise, but let’s be intentional this year about carving out time to truly Celebrate Life and make the most of this Summer!

…And I hope this bucket list inspires you to do just that! 😉

Until next time,

    I want to camp with my girls, catch a day baseball game in the middle of the week, and hike next to a stream in the North Carolina mountains. That’s just the start! Thanks for getting my mind going on this. *Glad I wound up here from the Let’s Get Real link up.

    What a great printable, we made our summer list 2 days ago but I might have to transfer it to this printable. So cute! Our list has going to the zoo, the beach, the park, camping in the garden and much more on it!

    Love these ideas for summer fun, and free printables are always awesome! I got some great advice from a friend – they schedule all their fun stuff first on their calendar, and plot in the boring meetings and doctor visits and things around them! Thanks for sharing your ideas on Merry Monday!

    This is such a cute printable! I love that it forces you to set a realistic number of things you want to do instead of having a list of 100 activities that you couldn’t possibly accomplish in one summer. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday this week.

      Oh my gosh, that’s such a good point. I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a little “over-ambitious” when planning out fun things to do in the summer! 🙂
