35 Before 35

I realize that this may seem a bit redundant since I already have my Bucket List (and some of the items are the same), but there is no "finality" with that one. No end game. This at least has some direction, to be finished by my 35th birthday. And since my 33rd birthday is a mere six weeks ago, I thought now was the perfect time to get this started!

Some of the things on the list will be a piece of cake.

Some will be exceptionally hard.

And some just won't happen.....at all.

Regardless of how many items are actually crossed off by October 14, 2016, it's going to be a good journey. Because that's really what life is about. Embracing the moments as they come and enjoying the ride. The destination, is just the cherry on top.
