Initial post: April 28, 2009

Note: This is a living list and is updated from time to time. But while I write here some of the things I would like to do before I die, I do not want to focus too much on this just for the sake of crossing them out. I want to be spontaneous as much possible, just going with the flow and not be dictated on what my next move is by this bucket list.

    Oh My word Y! I have a list too! A few of the same things appearing on yours as mine-but I guess that’s inevitable! My list is here: What I love especially, is that a lot of your ones are family orientated and about the simple things in life-maybe I could draw more inspiration from that… Thanks so much for sharing!
