Summer Bucket List || Champaign, IL and Savannah, GA Portrait Photographer

My friend (and mentor and role model) Christy put up her Summer Bucket List, and it inspired us to create one as well. We had so much fun driving home from our Colorado trip brainstorming this list as we drove. I could almost feel the hot summer nights warming up my body, even though we were in an air conditioned car. Here is the list we started with at the beginning of the summer. I'll be updating soon with a few of the things we've already crossed off the list, seeing as summer is somehow already halfway over...
