Summer Bucket List

I am officially on summer vacation!! This is my first summer in three years that I don't have to take any summer classes, so I'm planning on taking advantage of that extra freedom. I've been getting super excited for this summer, so I have lots of things I want to do.

I was inspired by the summer schedule you can find here and the summer fun list you can find here. The only problem with these is that they are aimed for children. Adults want to have fun in summer, too! So I've made my own schedule complete with fun things you should try to cross off your summer bucket list this year!
