My Bucket List

I had more spare time today than I thought I would, so I decided what better way to pass the time than posting my bucket list on here.  And watching The Vampire Diaries. And snuggling in bed with four comforters because fall has finally arrived in central and northern Michigan!

Anywho, like I stated before, I hope this inspires at least one person to start compiling their own.  When I first began it, I thought yeah right like I’ll ever be able to do any of these things, but honestly all it takes is to have a dream or a goal, committ to it, and find a way to do it.

I will continue to add to my list when I see a place I’d like to visit or something new to try.  Each time I am able to cross off something I will blog about it, and post pictures if possible. So here it goes!
