Bucket List

Girl thinking about Walt Disney quote The other day, I wrote out a long bucket list on three pieces of paper. Using my favorite markers, I made this list colorful and full of hope.  Although some of my dreams are unrealistic, I still hang onto them because who knows?  Maybe one day they will all come true.

Anyway, so I thought I would share them.  Maybe you will get some ideas.  I sure would love to hear any things that I should add to my list.  Also I hope that this will help keep me accountable.  Throughout the years, I can keep crossing off items.  Already a few are done after my trip to London.  So here it is.
