It’s been a while since I’ve checked up on my Yearly Bucket List progress, so hopefully this will keep me motivated to cross a few more things off my list in the next couple busy months!
- Go camping.
- Write & mail hand-written “love letters” to important people in my life.
Read at least 4 books – two recommended to me by loved ones, at least one non-fiction, and one just for fun.Done: Somewhere in France by Jennifer Robson, Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle, I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai & Yes Please by Amy Poehler (you can find my thoughts on the first three here, and as for Yes Please, I love Amy Poehler even more now!) Host a wine tasting party.Done – December 13th Run through the sprinklers.Done – August 27th
- Print more of my photography for our house.
- Have a picnic.
Go on a weekend getaway with Max.Done – December 20th-21st See a play.Done – November 21st – Spamalot (and December 20th – A Christmas Carol)

Plant hydrangeas in our yard.Done (kind of) – we’ve planted lots of other plants/flowers, just no hydrangeas yet. The bed we want to put them in still has to be re-done, so this one may not “officially” get crossed off until next year’s list!
