My Bucket List

bucket lists


Another year has come and gone.  I started my Bucket List 3 years ago.  Each year I pull it out to see what I've accomplished during the year.
I've given birth to a beautiful daughter, survived a divorce, given the United Stated government 35 34 32 years of service, raised a daughter as a single mother, sent her through college, watched her get married and give birth to a beautiful son  son and daughter.  I've traveled, made new friends and kept old ones, purchased a home, a luxury car and I've been able to bank a few dollars. I've survived my father's death and become closer to my siblings. I've strengthen my faith in God, I'm giving back to the community, and I can truly say that I'm working to be an example.  


Even at this stage of my life, I still have work to do. I've been thinking about retirement in the next 2 3 5 years and what I want to accomplish before and after I reach that milestone. I decided to make a Bucket List. Here are a few items that I've added or achieved to date:

  •  Drive Across Country 
  • Travel Abroad - Africa, Italy, Hong Kong, London, Thailand  
  • Cruise To Alaska  (Decided to mark this off my list.  I don't cruise well). 
  • Open a Brick and Mortar for Sugar Kisses Boutique  (Decided to mark this off my list.  Not willing to work this hard anymore). 
  • Plant A Vegetable Garden 
  • Learn A Second Language - Spanish  
  • Skydive  (Decided to mark this off my list.  I'm not willing to take this risk)
  • Attend the Kentucky Derby 
  • Eat Lobsters In Maine 
  • Visit Martha's Vineyard 
  • See the fall foliage in the New Hampshire area 
  • Spend a week in New York shopping and seeing a Broadway show 
  • Go horseback riding on the beach
  • Add a sunroom to my hone
  • Travel to Hawaii, Barbados, Dominican Republic, Jamacia, Virgin Islands
  • Plant flower beds along my new fence line
  • Build a greenhouse

 I'll be adding to my list as I contemplate the next phase of my list. Have you created a Bucket List? Let us know what's on yours.  If you haven't created a list, name a few things that you would add to yours.
