It seems to be the latest thing to post a Life List. I asked my hubby what would be on his and he said nothing. He’s done everything he wanted to do. That’s the danger of living long and living well. I’ve done most of what others would include on a Bucket List like learning to scuba dive and traveling from coast to coast. Ideally I’d like to try everthing ONCE except risky things like skydiving & bungee jumping, I’ll pass on those. So here’s my list because it’s easier to make a list than to write a real blog post!

Go to a BlogHer & Blissdom.
Make my own scented soaps.
Make my own scented candles.
Publish a cookbook.
Have the dogs’ pictures taken sitting on Santa’s lap.
Go to Europe.
Sew my own clothes and curtains.
Have “something” named after me. It could be a child, a dog, a perfume, a dress, ANYTHING. I just would like my name to go on after I die.
Have one of my pictures go to the popular page on Instagram or get more than 32 likes (current highest number)!
