The Bucket List

Because everyone should have one, right?  I started this a few years ago, so some items have already been checked off.  Not many because I haven’t really been that good of a bucket list checker offer.  I recently added quite a few after reading a bucket list on one of the blogs I follow.  I liked the way she set hers up, so I did a bit of reorganizing with mine.  I also liked some of her ideas and added them to my list.  And, I’m sure more items will be added as life goes on.
