Bucket List

A few months ago Alex mentioned an acquaintance of his was working on accomplishing several items on his bucket list. That got me thinking about what I would put on my bucket list if I had one. I’m very blessed to live a life where I am able to have so many incredible experiences, but nonetheless, I love to travel, explore and savor in the good life. So, one day while sitting oceanside in Mexico I decided to start my very own bucket list. Here it is {in no particular order}:

  • Drive the California coast
  • Become conversationally fluent in Spanish
  • Run a half marathon
  • Build a house
  • Become a mother

  • Take a Powder Highway road trip
  • Adopt a child and/or become a foster parent

  • Get Jackson certified as a therapy dog and take him to hospitals/nursing homes
