4. Stay on my grandparents' farm 
*Completed 6/18/12*

I had a wonderful weekend on my grandparents' farm! I spent most of my time wandering around the farm, talking with my grandmother, and eating some amazing meals... AND to top it all off, I went almost 24 hours without internet and my phone--it felt so great!

Here are few photos I took while on my visit

5. Watch the sunrise  

*Completed 7/6/12*

This morning I woke up and found myself unable to fall back to sleep, so instead of watching re-runs of The Nanny, I decided to check one more thing off my list. I walked to the edge of my neighborhood and after waiting patiently for about 20 minutes I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise! Seriously, these photos don't do it justice!
