My Bucket List

A year ago today, my husband proposed to me and this past July we tied the knot. Getting married had always been something I wanted to do ever since I was young. It was even on a bucket list I created back in middle school which I recently rediscovered in July when we were moving. I was able to cross off quite a few things from that list which was actually a pretty awesome feeling and I thought that I should update my list to see how many more goals I can accomplish over the next few years.

I love reading other people’s bucket lists and I find it so inspiring to see what they have accomplished. They are out there trying new things, learning about themselves, and having incredible experiences, which is a great way to approach life! I want to start approaching my life that way and see where it takes me.

I decided that I would add to my bucket list from middle school and share it with you all! Maybe this will inspire you to make your own bucket list and evaluate what your goals are!

I hope you enjoyed reading my bucket list! I’d love to know what you all have on your own bucket lists or if you are interested in making one. It’s a lot of fun to sit and think about the things you want to accomplish and I’m sure crossing these things off the list will feel amazing!



Note: I will update this post as I cross items off my list or think of other goals I have over time!
