Modern Eve's Summer Bucket List

It’s couple weeks into summer and I’m already feeling itchy. Seriously, I’m like an ungrateful teen, complaining of boredom and bitter that her favorite TV shows are on hiatus. Summer used to be my favorite season, but then I moved to Dallas (hello, triple digits and mosquitos) and became paranoid about sun damage. While I love the idea of outdoor picnics and gathering friends for a game of bocce ball, I’m sadly dependent on my air conditioning right now. And life with a baby means our long summer nights end at an unsatisfying 7 pm.

But summer still has a lot to offer and I don’t intend on wasting it away at the mall or coveting my California friends’ instagrams. I decided to assemble a summer bucket list to make sure I don’t miss out on the fun. Here’s some things I hope to make happen from now until the end of August. Follow me on instagram (@moderneve) and see if I am able to check these items off my list!
