Bucket List

For a little background about how this list came to life, check out my original post here.

Below is a list of things I want to do in life. I will be updating it as I check things off and come up with new goals! Keep an eye out for posts that detail how some of these get completed.

And please let me know what you think of what I have on my list. I’d love to hear what you have on yours, or if you have a list at all. Let’s live our dreams together!
