Fun Things To Do This Summer

Fun Things To Do This Summer | A Girl, Obsessed

Summertime is my favorite part of the year (closely followed by autumn, of course). I suffer from a lot of seasonal depression in the winter months, so when summer rolls around it feels like my soul gets a burst of happiness and creativity. Even though it can get super hot, I still like to get out and do some fun summer activities to celebrate the season. There's just something about these long, warm days that makes me want to get out and do stuff like crazy. If you're trying to come up with ideas for your summer bucket list, here are some of my favorite seasonal activities.
