Summer Bucketlist!

20 June 2014

It's officially summer and I am so excited for adventures and bare feet in the grass.

I've been a little MIA on the blog lately because I took a wonderful new job as an operations manager for a technology company and I've been pretty distracted getting my feet wet and learning the ins and outs of my new role.  So far, I am really loving it and it feels like I could really find my place here.

So far, summer has been busy!  I took a week long trip to NYC to train for my new job, I was a bridesmaid in a lovely wedding, and I've been just enjoying the company of my amazing friends as often as I can.

Here's a list of some things I am really looking froward to over the next few months to really take in all that summer has to offer...

+make lots of meals from garden produce
+attend a brewfest
+swim in the sandy river
+watch fireworks on the beach
+see crater lake
+preserve strawberries
+learn to make fruit wine
+make rose jelly
+have a tomato canning party with friends
+visit Sauvies Island
+go on a picnic

What did I miss?  What is on your summer bucket list?


  1. Rose jelly sounds delicious! So different from the norm.

  2. Fabulous Summer bucket list! Crater Lake is down as the most beautiful place on earth that I've seen yet... seriously, so gorgeous. Bring good hiking shoes though... the climb down (and up!) at the lake is killer! And, you should totally join us for the Portland Bloggers Friends & Family picnic!

  3. Thanks Jenni! I am so excited to see it in a few weeks! It's been on my list since I moved here over a decade ago, so now is the time!
    Do you guys have a date for the Portland Bloggers Picnic! I definitely want to get it on my calendar and I hope I can make it! Let me know if I can help at all!
