Goodbye Summer.....

Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer (sigh) -- but at the same times let's me know fall is right around the summer (LOVE). With that being said, I thought it would be fun to look back on my summer bucket list to see what I actually accomplished! Even though I didn't get to accomplish every single thing on the list, I think overall I had an amazing summer : )

    It looks like you had a really fun summer. I had a similar goal to dust off my juicer and start using it more. I successfully did that for a few weeks.

  4. After checking out your bucket list (and everything you crossed off!) it definitely seems like you had an amazing summer!
