“What are you so afraid of?”
Carter Chambers from the movie, The Bucket List

Here’s my dreamy list, best mused over when lying on a comfortable couch with chimes ringing outside the screen door.

  • Own a Daisy dog
  • Cruise Alaska
  • Travel around Europe
  • Publish a book or two
  • Be debt-free in five years
  • Get a small tattoo for my eyes only
  • Add a bedroom and pool to our beach cottage
  • Buy a loft apartment in a creative and fun downtown
  • Add a loft overlooking the screen porch of our mountain house
  • Visit Santa Fe again, Mackinac Island, Hershey and Pennsylvania’s Dutch Country, Acadia National Park, Theodosia’s B&B on Bald Head Island and Coeur D’ Alene
  • Ride a horse-pulled buggy through Charleston, S.C.

“Never tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” Unkown

  • Ride in a hot air balloon
  • Visit all 50 states
  • Study photography

  • Daytrip, daytrip and daytrip more
  • Vacation with our family in Disney World
  • Schedule monthly pedicures and weekly massages

WRite wHere I’m supposed to be – I’ll let you know if we make it to Ruth’s Chris Steak House instead of our all time favorite K&W Cafeteria. Of course, then we may have to postpone being debt-free. In the meantime, I’d love to read what’s on your before-you-kick-the-bucket-list list.

On the side: Thanks to friend and photographer Sally Taylor for giving permission to use her inspirational photos. Fly high!
