I'm Dawn! A Mom, photographer, and blogger living a small town and coastal life in Virginia. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you stay awhile, browse my latest work, read the stories of my awesome clients and catch up on my latest adventures.
I am a Bucket List person. I make one for myself every season of activities to do and places to go. I even made a Bucket List last January of new restaurants for us to try. I didn’t post about it but it took us a year and we finally checked off each one!
Every few weeks Rick and I sit down with a calendar and write down all of our upcoming social events and plans. Then we talk about what we want to do, find time to fit in what we can, leaving some open space for spontaneous plans. We’ve found that if we talk about things, they probably won’t happen. We have to be proactive and plan it out to make it happen.
Last January, I shared my 2018 Winter Bucket List and updated it to include what I was able to do. You can read that post here.
A few years ago I found a list of 50 ways to make the most of winter on Pinterest. I am a list and goal person so I was all about it! It inspired me to embrace winter and what it has to offer instead of wishing it away. Each year I use it as a reference to make my own.
Here is my list! I’ve included some things I didn’t get to do last year that are still on my list and some things I’ve already checked off. The first three are my “big” things. You will find the rest of my list are simple things that are free or cheap. There are so many things to do in the winter that don’t cost a lot of money.
2019 WINTER BUCKET LIST/THINGS TO DO:
Here are a couple of activities we already have planned that are standard and happen every year, but will list them anyway to give you some more ideas.
Want to make a list of your own? Here are some other ideas I’ve done in the past:
Are you making a winter bucket list? Here is the list from Pinterest I mentioned. I’d love to hear if you do or if you have any other ideas! Happy Winter!
