I’ve partnered up with Talbots this Memorial Day Weekend to share -the short version- of my summer bucket list.
Number 1: Explore my own neighborhood more. You know how when people live in big cities they always say how they never leave their own little neighborhood? Well I am embarrassed to admit that I do the same thing! There are so many incredible things to see and do in Newport, many of which I take advantage of, but plenty that I’ve yet to see (and I’ve lived here for most of my life). Some of the houses on my street date as far back as the 1700s and there’s historic gems like that all over town.
Number 2: Get to the ocean everyday: Towards the end of the summer last year right after I left my job I started to make this a goal of mine. There’s just nothing like salt-water therapy. It’s so healing and calming. It’s hard to describe the feeling after taking a swim int he ocean, there’s really nothing like it. And after suffering through the winter we had there’s no excuse not to take full advantage of it!
Number 3: Date night on the water: Tying in with bucket list item number 1, Craig and I end up taking less time for ourselves in the summer because we’re either over scheduled or just want to avoid crowds, but this summer we’re planning a date night every week somewhere new on the water. We’re coming up on our 10 year (yes 10!) anniversary so I think we both deserve a special night out cocktails and bridge views included.
