Summer To-Done List

The laundry, picking up milk at the store, paying the electric bill, writing the next great American novel; There's something cathartic about checking items off a to-do list. How much greater would it be if they weren't things you dreaded but stuff you actually looked forward to doing!? We've compiled an ambitious list but we think the more of these to-dos you get to-done, the more you'll enjoy summer.
