The Mississippi Gulf Coast is filled with a wide variety of things to enjoy year round, so this year I decided to create a “Bucket List” for each season, in hopes to check off as many things as possible.

Some of the items on my Summer Bucket List were simple things that I haven’t done in a while like reading a book, trying a new recipe I found on Facebook, and swinging on a rope swing. Others were a bit more whimsical, such as learning to solve a Rubik’s cube one-handed and purchasing a bunch of lollipops trying to find the elusive “Indian shooting a star” Tootsie Pop wrapper.

While I didn’t quite cross off everything I wanted to accomplish, I was able to knock out quite a few, so with fall having officially arrived I wanted to take a look back on some of the fun I got to experience during the hot summer months.
