With summer officially ending in just a few weeks, my weekends are fast becoming last-minute hurrahs. Due to some unforeseen occurrences earlier in the year, I was not able to enjoy my summer to the fullest. I was not able to enjoy backyard cookouts with family and friends or take day trips to Santa Cruz or SF, and that’s okay. Sometimes life doesn’t always go as expected, you just have to roll with the punches and keep going, and make the best of what you have. The end of summer is similar to that all-too-familiar Sunday night feeling, knowing Monday morning is staring you in the face.
To alleviate some of that end-of-summer depression, I’ve started thinking about some things that I could do to end my summer with a bang! Simple things, nothing over the top, but something that would give that feeling, you what I am talking about. The feeling you can’t describe it’s just there. So here is my list, some of these I will be crossing off in just under a week as we set off for South Dakota. Why South Dakota? Well, Little Katie Goes to the Moon won silver in the general children’s category from Literary Classics, and they will be hosting all of the winners in Rapid City South Dakota where will have a formal gala, and attend the Great American Book Festival over Labor Day weekend.
I would love for you to leave a comment at the bottom and share some last minute things that are on your summer bucket list. Or, share some things that you have already crossed off your summer bucket list.
