I know that so many people are still struggling with after effects (physical and mental) of the past few years, myself included. My daughter included. My mom and dad and other family and friends included.
We had plans for trips, concerts, barbecues, and so much more, just like everyone else. While we’re still planning on using caution, we feel slightly lighter on the shoulders. So while I know that not everyone is able to think and plan about their summer, my daughter and I love to ‘daydream,’ and so that’s what this is. It’s all realistic stuff, given where we live, what we’re comfortable with, and so on.
I thought that this would be a fantastic bullet journaling challenge! So I created our Summer Bucket List! My daughter and I worked together to come up with these and would love it so much if you shared your list, too. Head over to Instagram and use the hashtag #LifeGlitterSummer and tag my handle @IAmArtByLara so I can see how you create, draw, illustrate, and execute the items on your list. I’ll be reposting and sharing and everything (at random, but still), so let’s fill IG with bujo/artjo fabulousity, shall we?
Without further ado, here’s our Summer Bucket List er… list!
