My step-daughter graduated last Thursday!
Congratulations, Allie! We are very proud of you! =)
You don’t have to be old or dying to have a bucket list, and it’s never too early or late to start one. I’ve been working on mine for several years now and figured it was time I published it.
What is a bucket list? It’s a wish list of things you want to do before you “kick the bucket”. No one is promised tomorrow, so why put it off?
I want to see the world, so my list includes a lot of traveling. I want to see every state in America, so my husband and I plan on taking short (lasting three or four days) trips to a different state on the list at least once or twice a year, with a long trip in between. Of course, three to four days is not enough to see everything, but it’s a start! One trip we have discussed is visiting Salem, Massachusetts, so we plan on making that a four day trip either this Fall or next. We also want to spend some time in Louisiana, seeing the bayou and visiting New Orleans, so that is another trip we are looking into.
It helps that my husband and I share the same interests and want the same things. It means I don’t have to do this alone! It’s always more fun when you have your best friend with you to experience new and exciting things!
Check out my super long Bucket List and watch as I start to mark them off! I’m sure I’ll also be adding more to the list throughout the years…in fact, I just thought of another adventure…
Remember to dream as if you’ll live forever and live every day as if it were going to be your last!
I’ve been contemplating buying a Kindle for about a year now. When they first came out, I wanted nothing to do with them. I just couldn’t imagine giving up my precious books. I am a proud book hoarder. At last count, I had twenty-five large (and heavy) boxes of books (which my husband and kids give me grief over…since they had to cart them from house to house each time we moved). I’ve added more to my collection since my last move eight months ago (Wow, I can’t believe it’s been eight months already!), so it’s probably at twenty-six boxes by now.
My husband wanted to get me a Kindle two Christmases ago, probably in hopes that I would stop filling his house with books that he knows he will have to move at least one more time in the next year or two. I told him I didn’t want one. I spend so much time sitting in front of a computer working, surfing and blogging that I just couldn’t imagine putting my face in front of another electronic device when I wanted to read a book.
I should have let him buy the Kindle. Now, I’m trying to win one by entering in sweepstakes. I don’t think a Kindle could ever replace my books, but I must admit it would be handy to have at times.
Do you prefer paper books or e-books? Should I get a Kindle? I’m looking at the Kindle Fire HD. Pros/cons?
