2019 Summer Bucket List

Another year, another summer means ANOTHER SUMMER BUCKET LIST!

If you want to revisit the archives here are my bucket lists from year’s past!

2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013!

I started making seasonal bucket lists in 2013 after being single for the first time in 4 years. I wanted to learn how to find myself again, do things that I enjoyed and push myself out of my comfort zones. Throughout the years the lists have been amazing for doing things with friends, on my own, on dates or with my now husband!

This year I divided up into things I love and new things I’d like to try!

Former Loves

After buying a stand-up paddleboard a few years ago, I love making sure I get out on the water every summer on the board. And now that Rogue loves it we usually bring it with us for weekend adventures near water.

We had an amazing 3-day canoe trip to Algonquin Park 2 years ago. I re-booked a campsite on Burnt Island Lake this year. I want to try and snag the last campsite we were on.

We usually only go up to Mike’s family’s cottage for the May long weekend and for Thanksgiving. I think we’ll head up for another long weekend this summer to hopefully get amazing weather.

Of course, I want to fit in some golf and more road biking…


After upgrading our backyard patio and getting this firepit, we plan on spending as many nice evenings out in the back as we can!

And while we’ve enjoyed outdoor drive-in movie’s before I found a cool Ottawa event called Capital Pop Up Cinema so we’ll try this out this year.

Trying Something New

And for new things, this year… Mike actually asked if we could go glamping. So we’ve booked a tent I found on AirBnB. If it’s amazing I’ll do a recap post later in July.

Other than that, we want to go visit the Bonnechere Caves a short drive from Ottawa.

I really wanted a slow shutter sparkler photo at our wedding but now I can set up a photoshoot just to get a picture of sparklers spelling out my name 🙂

I’m going to need to stay up late to catch a firefly, go night swimming and I’ve booked a girl’s weekend to swim under the covered bridge in Wakefield.

Last but not least, Mike and I want to do some outdoor rock climbing. Thankfully, he has all the equipment and I’m comfortable top rope climbing so we’ll scout out a few places early on a weekend morning.
