Summer 2017 has begun… and then just like that it’s September, and with it, the first week of Fall!
June was an extremely busy month for this gypsy! And what I didn’t think would happen, neglecting my beloved blog, totally happened! I have even been terrible at posting on Instagram! I seriously feel terrible about it, but at the same time, being disconnected and just living without documenting every second of it was a nice break as well!
July picked up more speed and August didn’t slow down either! Every weekend through Labor Day was jam-packed full of adventures, weddings and exploring Washington! And let me tell you, I am loving every second of it (even though I am exhausted)!
To kick start this summer, friends and I went hiking up the Quinault River for Memorial Day weekend. It was the most I had ever carried in my pack, and I have to admit, it was pretty challenging (more to come in my next post)!
I had the incredible honor of being a brides-maid for my best friends wedding in July; and danced my shoes off at another friends wedding Labor Day weekend.
Ending my amazing summer of 2017, with a month long celebration of my birthday (I seriously have the best group of friends!).
So during this fall and winter I have a few items on my bucket list I would like to cross off:
- National Parks in Washington: There are three National Parks; Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Mount Rainier. I’ve already done many parts of the Olympics and Northern Cascades, but I have yet to make it down to Mount Rainier.
- Olympic Hot Springs
- Hurricane Ridge
- Corn Maze
- Haunted House
- Levenworth for Christmas
- Snow Tubing
- Learn to Snow Board
- Yoga! Lots more yoga!
My master bucket list is much larger than the above, however I decided to just pick out the ones I would like to accomplish for this upcoming Fall and Winter months.
Last year I was busy exploring other parts of Washington, and the above list is left over from what I wanted to accomplish last year and new activities that I discovered too late in the year to do! As a result, I have been waiting patiently for this time of year to get in some of these experiences!
Fingers crossed that I get to check them all off this year! What’s on your bucket list to-dos, do you have any suggestions for me to check out!?
