My Bucket List: Before I Die

Thursday, January 19, 2012
I think it's such a good idea to have goals and dreams to get us through each day during this life; something to look forward to, and to show our progress when we do things we've only imagined of doing on paper. This is that for me, my bucket list. There are 100 spaces and I still have a few empty as I've edited this a few times over the years, but I'm excited and hopeful to cross more off my list!
