40 Things to Do Before Summer Ends!

Summer ends on September 22nd and I’ve rounded up 40 things to do to make the most of it!


Hello, beautiful ones!  I pray that you’re doing exceedingly well!


Before we know it, the long days of summer, its beauty, and its heat will fade into shorter days, cooler temps, and leafless trees.  Even if you’re excited to see summer leave and ready to start wearing layers again and cuddling in front of a fire, there are still a few things you can do to enjoy the remaining days!

    When people ask me “how’s your summer going?” I kind make a face & say “what summer?” ?? Ever since I started working back in 2011, I’ve never had a summer break or had done anything. At least this summer I went to NYC & went to a few events. So my summer wasn’t so much of a drag. But it goes to show, I can’t enjoy myself at all. I’ve never been on a vacation before. All I do is work 40 hours a week. As much as I don’t want summer to end, I definitely will try my best to soak up as much of it until it ends ? great list btw! ❤️

    I can’t even believe that summer is this close to an end. I will certainly hit up one more wine festival, hit the pool a few more times, and I love the idea of test driving my dream car. Sad to see summer go, but fall is pretty awesome too. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas.

  • We are going to go to the pool one or two more times. But we are so ready for summer to be over and fall to begin!
