The Bucket List

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

For as long as I can remember I have had little life goals, lists of things I had to do or places I had to visit, I even once drew a vision board that had some of these things on it- don't ask why I didn't just use Pinterest! Anyway, the point is I can't believe it has taken me this long to realise that my blog is the perfect place to pull all my lists together and finally create my bucket list.
