Gypsy Moms and Summer Bucket Lists

One of the reasons that I started this blog is to encourage families to be adventurous.  When I found out I was pregnant with my son Jax, most people warned me about saying goodbye to my free spirit lifestyle.  It isn't a huge secret that I have always lived like a gypsy, taking any opportunity to travel and embrace new experiences.  I resided in Tennessee through my college years, spent a summer in Yosemite National Park, lived in NYC for 6 years, survived Hurricane Sandy at an oceanfront beach house, and most recently relocated to Atlanta with my husband after encouraging him to take a chance with his own career while I focus on family and being a stay at home mom. We as a family plan to keep traveling and one day move again and experience new opportunities.  My son is my best friend and he has never suffered from my belief that it is okay to continue living your dreams and making yourself happy.  It may be too early to tell at the tender age of 2, but I feel that he is becoming a little explorer full of life and learning valuable lessons as we voyage together. 

So what does an adventurous family do in the summer!?  They start a Summer Bucket List and try as hard as they can to check everything off.  Now this list doesn't have to be full of expensive and extravagant travels.  I hope with this blog, I can help families go on vacations, enjoy their summers, and have fun with their kids without breaking the bank. 

Check out our Toddler approved Summer Bucket List and make your own!  Remember… it's never to late to have an awesome summer!!!

Take these last weeks of summer and get going!  =-D
