Our Spring Bucket List

Summer officially begins at the beginning of June which is also when we jet off to Greece for a week in the sun! Bliss. It fiiiinally feels like Spring has sprung here in Sussex, well if you ignore the odd rainy days, that is 😉 The daffodils are out in full bloom, the sun has made an appearance quite a few times lately and I am just itching to dig out my summer sandals!

In a similar style to my Festive Bucket list I thought I’d share with you a few of the things that we are hoping to do before Summer properly kicks off in just a few weeks time!

  • Find some local Bluebells & take some family photos
  • Go Strawberry picking & bake a batch of our favourite strawberry cupcakes
  • Host our first BBQ of the year
  • Visit a National Trust place that we haven’t been to before & take a picnic
  • Complete the Gruffalo trail at Bedgebury
  • Take Bella swimming
  • Plant some vegetable seeds in the garden
  • Visit Josh’s Grandparents in Norfolk
  • Explore our own village more
  • Go for an evening trip to the beach for fish & chips and a walk – This is one of our favourite things to do on a warm evening!
  • Decorate our spare bedroom – unlikely to happen before Summer arrives, but a girl can dream, right?!
  • Spend a day at the Zoo – Bella has never been before but I’m sure she will absolutely love it!
  • Celebrate our THREE year Wedding Anniversary!!

What are your favourite things to do at this time of year? Here’s a couple of my favourite photos of Bella from last Spring!!




Thanks for reading,
Harriet xo

    Wow well done for setting so many goals! I’m so bad at that but you’ve inspired me to make some plans for the warm weather. Our favourite thing to do is head to the beautiful park we live next to and stay into the evening. My husband comes and meets us after work and we have a picnic dinner, such special family time. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

    What a lovely list! We’ve done a few of these things already but I’m sure we will continue to do them throughout spring. I also love evening trips to the beach for fish and chips 🙂 xx

    […] We don’t have any huge plans between now and when we go away which makes a nice change, hopefully we can finish some odd jobs around the house (which I can then happily tick off my ‘To Do’ lists), the weather is also meant to be lovely so I’m eager to spend lots of time outside soaking up the Sunshine with my favourite people and working our way through our Spring Bucket List.
