Spring Bucket List 2019

Before anything else, thank you so much for all your sweet words and messages about Sunday's post. Each holiday presents different challenges, and I know that's what happens in the first year of experiencing loss; however, some holidays are more challenging to navigate or are more complicated/painful ones. Anyway, all your kindness, thoughts and prayers meant the world. Thank you.

I can't believe that we are already half-way through May! Despite all the rain that we had the month of April we are still really loving Spring here in Vermont! I almost missed posting our Spring Bucket List simply because time is going by so fast. At this rate, it will be Summer soon (anyone else can't wait to go swimming?!).

Here is our little list of Spring goals and plans: 

+Lots of playground trips. I'm soaking in every bit of living in town, and one of the benefits is having two great playgrounds within walking distance. The kids love playing, and it's nice for me to let them run around and get all their wiggles out.

+Walk every day. I find that when we get out of the house every day and get some daily exercise our mornings go SO much better. Just taking a short walk down around the block helps set us in a better mood for the day.

+Plant a garden. While we don't have a lot of space, we do plan on planting some stuff, and also planting pots full of stuff in the driveway (it's beautiful and sunny there).

+Celebrate Adri Rose's birthday. Someone is turning four at the end of the month, and true to her type A nature, she has the entire party planned out: princess balloons, with a dinosaur cake, hot dogs, and mac and cheese. 

+Finish all my half-read books. I have way too many books that are half read, and I really need to just find some time to sit and read for the afternoon.

+Swim. Adri is going to take swimming lessons this year, and she's been talking non-stop about going swimming in the ocean. We also have some lovely rivers near us to go swimming in as well.

+Take lots of hikes. If you've been around us at all, you know that Adam and I love hiking and exploring the great outdoors. We can't wait to check out some of the new (to us) places around here. 


  1. Sounds like an excellent list to me.

  2. What a great list of fun things to do for this spring! Most important in all of these is making great memories with your sweet daughters! Blessings, Shirley
