Oh sweet, sweet summertime.
Even though the Georgia humidity feels indefinite, summer seems to arrive and depart as quickly as a coastal storm. (For those of you who don't frequent the Southeast, storms around these parts strike without warning and often transform from floodgates to blue skies in a matter of minutes.) So in an effort to make the most of the precious weeks that remain, here's a quick bucket list for the remainder of summer 2016. (Items in yellow are complete!)
25 things I'd love to try, see and do in my 25th summer:
Hike a mountain
Mount Storm King in Olympic National Park, outside Seattle. Stevie and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary by huffing and puffing our way up to the top. Tough, but totally worth it! You can read about Stevie's reflection on the hike over on his blog.
Go to a trivia night
Light sparklers in the backyard
Jump in the ocean
Because no summer is complete without some saltwater hair and a little bodysurfing...
Watch an outdoor movie
Send a care package
Ride a tandem bike
Ok, people, not as easy as it sounds!
Discover a new favorite Atlanta patio
Try a wine slushy
Join a yoga studio
You'll find me handstanding and down dogging over at Thunderbolt Power Yoga!

Seattle and Portland were a first for me, and I loved them both! The first half of our trip is coming to the blog this week!
