I have a few bucket lists: summer with the kids, travel, and just a general bucket list. Guess I need to put them all together because they are in different places. I’d love to see a bucket list from the other members of my family.

I believe bucket lists are very telling: no pressure goals, no matter how lofty.

What’s on your bucket list? What items on this list have you done? (share the link to your blog below, I’d love to see it!)
