We recently asked our followers on Instagram and Facebook to share what is on their summer bucket list. It came as no surprise that we were incredibly inspired by your responses – our Bella Grace community is filled with such creative, thoughtful, and heartfelt souls! Below is our Bella Summer Bucket List, a compilation of your hopes for the season along with a few of our own! If you’re in need of a little everyday magic this season, reference the list below for a spark of inspiration.
“Every summer I take my two daughters berry picking at our local u-pick farm.” – Sara Waterhouse
“Ride a carousel with my daughter!! (I just became a Mama through adoption, and she has me freshly experiencing everything!)” – @Whitney.Napier
“At the top of my summer bucket list is a trip to the beach! I enjoy life in the desert but my heart and soul can only be replenished by the sight, sound and smell of ocean waves.” – Cindy Blake
“Spontaneous picnics, where we take our dinner outside and eat on the front lawn, always finishing with popsicles!” – @mouseears_mama
“More family time and outdoor activities less technology. Lets talk face to face. Pack a picnic and go on an adventure!” – @rachelfolden
“Learning to decorate cakes and cupcakes, finishing the first draft of my novel, reading a lot.” – @theredheadedwriter
“Discovering new beaches, new outdoor cafes, new summer recipes, new summer reads, a new summer hat, sunglasses, and a heart full of adventure.” – Cheryle Cabrera

Chase fireflies around the backyard like when you were a little girl. Laugh at them tickling your hand when you finally catch one. Release it gently back to join its friends and start chasing them again.
When the first firefly comes I actually squeal with excitement. They are magic to me at any age.
