Silken’s Summer 2020 Bucket List!

Hey beach babes- happy August! Can you believe it!? We have one month left of the summer before all of the pumpkins, flannels & lattes begin!

I’m not gonna lie, I’m one of the people that consider it to be fall once the kids go back to school in September! (I know, I know! Don’t judge me!) As much as I love the colourful leaves, cool mornings & scary movies I do appreciate our short-lived Canadian summers! In the three-ish months we have to soak up the sun, I try to jam pack my days off with as many outdoor activities as I can! (Because the minute I see a flake of snow- I remind myself that the humidity and sweat summer glow is all worth it!)

To be honest, I thought Summer 2020 would be a write off due to COVID-19…but if anything, I think I’ve been putting in so much effort and creativity that it’s become *surprisingly* one of my favourite summers yet! This year I’ve truly learned to appreciate the little things, focus on the positive and make the most of any situation that life throws at me! Bring on all of the kayaking, camping, picnics and beach days!

I’ve come up with a (social-distance friendly) Summer 2020 bucket list- filled with things that are all a-okay to participate in this summer! I hope I can encourage you to get outside and make the most of August before we blink and it’s over! (And hey- although everything I’ve come up with has been approved within stage 3 of our provincial government’s regulations…there is zero judgement if you want to stay home and soak up the sun in the comfort of your own backyard! There’s nothing quite like your favourite summer playlist, a bbq & drinks on the house!)

While I’ve made a solid dent in making the most of summer 2020, I still have a few things I’d like to do before I commit to swapping out my summer home-decor for fall home-decor! What do you still have on your summer bucket-list!? Let me know if there’s anything you’ve been doing that I’ve missed!

P.S do you know anybody with a yacht!? If so I’ll supply the snacks + booze in trade for a sunny day cruise! ☀

Today’s Mantra: “The only B.S. I need is bikinis + sandals!”
