Bucket List

Everyone should have a bucket list!  We all have big dreams- why not write them down?  So much satisfaction comes from crossing things off once you've completed them.  I've been adding to and editing my list for years.  It started as a goal list, then grew into a bucket list.
A few weeks ago I found this site,, thanks to Pinterest.  The creator of the blog pairs up images with submissions from other people's bucket lists.  Its a simple idea, but very creative and inspiring. I loved scrolling though the pictures and discovering how many of my goals are on the lists of others.  This is my list with the completed goals crossed off.  Do you have a bucket list?  If not, I hope you are inspired to write one!
