Bucket List

This page houses my personal bucket list – which I started creating at age 25. As I cross things off this list, they will become hyperlinks… which will take you to the blog post about that particular experience. As you can see, the list isn’t a complete 100, because I feel like a bucket list is something that should grow and evolve as I get older. How could I possibly know everything I want to do in my life right now?

Thanks for following me through my life’s adventures; hopefully this bucket list endeavor will bring many more for us to experience together!
