Bucket List

I like the idea of a Bucket List. I like setting goals, making lists and then crossing things off. And when it comes to a Bucket List, you can really dream a bit and confess some true desires of the heart. I'm gonna bet they all won't get crossed off, but at least the dream is documented and listed, for me to look back on occasionally and remember all that I have yet to do in this life. A lot of these are desired to be done with my husband Matt, so when I say "we" or "together", I'm referring to my best friend.
