Life List

We all have a running list of things that we desire to accomplish, do, and experience in our life time. This list used to be more of a “where I’d like to travel” guide, but I’ve added more experienced based things in recent years, and even been able to check some off.

The best part? For each thing that I do, each destination that I visit, each time I experience something on the list, I add five new things.

  1. I would like to do most of those things with you, thanks. 🙂

  2. AWESOME list!! So- here is what I am thinking. Sometime in June or July, you could hop in your car and drive to Michigan (road trip to nowhere? by yourself? check off 38 & 76). Then, we can go to my favorite winery and the wine maker will take us out to pick our own grapes (78 check). We can then visit Mackinaw Island (no cars allowed- bikes & horses only) and ride around the entire island (28 check). Afterwards, we can take a sail on my familys sailboat (44), skinny dip in Lake Michigan (35), pick cherries off the trees at Cherry Fest (59), and I could even catch a snake for you to touch (21). AND, you will be one step closer to visiting all 50 states (77).

    Brilliant, no??

  3. You have a great life list going. I think we’d make for perfect travel partners. A lot of the things that you want to do I want to do or have already done.

  4. Girl, this list is incredible!! Sign me up 🙂

  5. Great list! I might have to borrow a few of those to add to my list…

    Still no snowshoeing? You must! 😉

  6. What an incredible list! Love that you are accomplishing things already! 🙂

  7. Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog–that was very sweet!

    I love your list. I haven’t really thought too much about one for me…maybe I should!

  8. I love this list! I have a list like this too. Checking things off is such a good feeling 🙂

  9. Wow, what an extensive list! 3 of mine on my bucket list are: skydiving, visit all 7 continents and hike all the way up a mountain and bike back down. 🙂
