What's on Your Bucket List?

Do you have a Bucket List?  I think the purpose of such a list is to help us dream, expand our horizons and meet new goals.  After all, what is life but a constant series of challenges?  Life in general throws enough crap at us as it is, so I wanted to create a list of achievable and enjoyable things to balance it out.  I’ve had one in my head for quite a while, but I recently decided to write it down so it would be more organized and I’d make a more conscious attempt to achieve some of them.

Actually I’ve been pretty lucky and I’ve gotten to do a lot of exciting things – probably as a result of that restless spirit I have.  A few of the highlights were parachuting, parasailing and white water rafting.  I consider myself a “Jill-of-all-trades, but mistress of none” because I can do a wide variety of things, but don’t consider myself an expert of anything.  I like to swim, snow ski, water ski, wakeboard, canoe, kayak, hike, climb, bike, roller skate, ice skate, horseback ride, snow mobile and go fishing. 

I want to constantly expand my horizons and experience new things.  I’ll do something for a while and then try something else.  After all, variety IS the spice of life!  The only thing that has remained constant for the past 29 years is my husband and that’s probably because he gets bored as easily as I do and we are constantly doing different things.  Talk about a perfect soul mate!

If I had to choose one thing though, my number 1 on the Bucket List is to take my kids to Rome.  I want to walk the streets and take in the Colosseum, toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, climb the Spanish Steps, visit the Pantheon, eat gelato and drink some wine.  It’s a city of impressive statues, old ruins and museums that are just waiting for me to explore them.

Go here to see what else is on my list:
Then sit down and make your own.  Come back and tell me what your number one item is on your list.  I’ll make mine happen somehow.  Will you?

  1. Well that's quite an interesting list, I had no idea you wanted to go to Rome. You might want to jump on that one sooner rather than later as once your kids get married and start having their own kids, it might be a little harder to finagle. Some of those things you could go out and do tomorrow so what are you waiting for? Others might be a little tougher, like meeting Neil & Marty. You've given me something to think about as I haven't considered my own bucket list.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
