Marriage Minute: Spring Bucket List

Note: Welcome to Marriage Minute, a new feature of the Chelsea Q. White Photography blog. Once a month, I’ll be sharing a marriage tip, article or story to help encourage you in building your marriage. You can see past posts here. Please let me know your ideas and feedback in the comments!

I don’t know about you but the springtime season gets me excited to be out and about on little adventures. I love dreaming of patio weather, morning walks at the lake and all sorts of spring festivities (yes, sometimes I do think my brain resides in Stars Hollow not DFW).

This spring, we’ve welcomed our second baby and so life is a bit chaotic and unpredictable. However, as we prepared for this upcoming season, one thing that helped me see this season in a more positive light was to have a bucket list of sorts of things we could do to get out as a family of four (and explore our new city) or just the two of us.

Of course, there’s no pressure to check everything (or anything!) off but just some pre-thought out ideas in case we get the itch. Regardless of whether you have children, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of doing the same things on the weekends or being subject to everyone else’s schedules (weddings, birthday parties, etc.). But in order to be intentional with my marriage and motherhood, I really like having options at the ready.

In no particular order, here’s what’s on mine (including a few things I know we won’t get to but really wish we could!)

  • happy hour in the town square
  • strawberry picking up north
  • Saturday mornings at the park
  • visit the zoo
  • try out local custard shop
  • visit the water park
  • hike at nearby nature preserve
  • visit a local winery
  • coffee
  • watch the planes land/take off
  • grill in the backyard; invite friends
  • enjoy an adult beverage in our backyard patio after kids go to bed
  • visit the local farmer’s market
