  1. I love your bucket list.. I always tell people bucket list should have big and small things on it because sometimes the small things are the ones we enjoy the most. so many people just have one big thing on the list and they never even do that but if you have small things and you do them you are more likely to get to doing the big ones and never stop adding to your list.. I love love love it..


    1. Aww! Thank you so much. I agree! Our bucket lists should be made up of little things we can do today and big things we can do tomorrow.

      Side note: sorry for the dreadfully late reply. I only just now saw your comment!


  2. I love the idea of having a bucket list on my blog that I can tick off! This is such genius! Some wonderful things on yours (: I’d love to picnic in wild flowers!

    1. I wish I could take credit for the idea! I saw a bucket list post on another blog several months back that the blogger tried to update frequently. Loved the idea! ❤
