the summer bucket list.

In my mind, forth of July kind of kickstarts the official heart of the summer. And it just occurred to me that I hadn't shared my summer bucket list with you all. Last year's bucket list (which you can check out here) was so much fun. Every time I checked something off my list I felt accomplished and satisfied knowing I was enjoying every last drop of summer. So without further ado, here is my 2013 summer bucket list:
