Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

Spoilers! What’s On My Bucket List?

This post first appeared on a very old blog of mine several years ago. In the spirit of the New Year, I decided to update it, and post it here for everyone to see. Maybe it will even give you some ideas for your own bucket list!

“Carpe Diem – to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future.” Or “seize the day.” Or “life is too short.” Or “when in Rome”. Or “you only live once.” Or “now or never.” So many names for just one word: live.

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness. Mainly, my own happiness. I’ve always have had a hard time focusing on myself. I always feel bad, like my attention should be elsewhere, like on work or school or family or friends. While those things are important, I am still important too.

I’ve shared a lot with my readers, and I’m not going to stop now. I’ve made myself a bucket list of 100 things I want to do before I “kick the bucket.” There’s no time like now, right? I’m working on a few of these presently, but I’m honestly excited to start marking these things off. I know these things will make me happy, and I hope after reading my bucket list, you’ll make your own.

Spoilers! Yearly Bucket List for Couples

Spoilers! Yearly Bucket List for Couples

If you follow me on FacYearly Bucket List for Couplesebook or Instagram, you already know our fiance visa was approved, and Alec is going to be in the US on October 13, 2017! That’s THREE days away! To say I’m ready is an understatement. I can barely concentrate at work, barely sleep, and barely contain my excitement. We’ve been in a long distance relationship for several years, visiting when we can scrape up the money and get the time off from work, and hoping for the day we can close the distance. And that day is finally here!

We close the distance permanently this Friday! In celebration, we wanted to plan a list of things to do together (but let’s be honest, I’ve had these lists for ages, hoping to do them some day with him). I made this cute yearly list for 4 things to do per month as a couple. Some items are geared towards STL but feel free to insert your city’s zoo or museum! What do you guys think? Would you add anything else to our couples’ bucket list??
