Spring Bucket List 2022

Spring Bucket List 2022 - Shutterbean.com 

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!  We have from March 20-June 20 to celebrate the season.  In preparation, I had a few of my friends over this week to write out our Spring Bucket List 2022 together. We had coffee, fruit salad, and scones and chatted about what we wanted to get done in the next few months. It was a great way to connect together and chat about what everyone was up to. I highly recommend it! 

Spring Bucket List 2022 - Shutterbean.com

The key to making a seasonal bucket list: don’t go overboard! Make reasonable intentions that will help you celebrate the season. 

Here’s what’s on my agenda for the next few months: 

Spring Bucket List 2022

  • Spring Clean Kitchen
  • Seedlings
  • Do Morning Pages
  • Fieldtrip for art
  • Celebrate anniversary
  • Beach trip
  • Make a soup
  • New product in shop (for mother’s day!)
