Get a Life {list}


I read the challenge from StephanieBond.com to create a life list. http://www.stephaniebond.com/create_a_life_list!.htm And decided it would be a good challenge for my blog today. I have a long list of “I always wanted toos” But I have never put them in print.
So here they are, in no particular order, just as the ideas occurred to me.
