The Bucket List

Standard

Everyone thinks about it. Most people start a list. Some people actually attempt items on the list.

What’s the purpose?

For me, it’s to live every moment to the fullest. I’m a planner through and through so if anything on my list is going to get done, I’m going to need a place to plan (however, a trip on the whim is definitely going to be on my list).

THE LIST

1. Fall in love with the perfect guy for me. Marry him.
