  1. This is such an amazing list! Love!

  2. Great list! I so want to do the Alaskan cruise too - I'm really not into cruises, but in such a vast and beautiful state, it really makes sense! =)

    1. I'm not into them either. If I was to go somewhere tropical I don't want to be stuck on a boat lol! I'm sure they are a lot of fun, but I don't think I could do it :)

  3. This is a fantastic list! I need to make a list like this, it's a great way to remember things you want to do, and also important for reminding ourselves to have dreams and pursue them! My list would definitely include running a half or full marathon too, I think that would be amazing.

  4. Kristen, I love this list. Every item is authentic and attainable, yet challenging too. I've created several lists, including a "lofty" bucket list that will take me forever (and a larger bank account) to accomplish, but I also have realistic resolutions too. Anything to to keep us accountable, right?! We might need to collaborate on some of these .... I'm up for Disney World anytime, and I have a horse, and I am a huge fan of Lady A and Carrie. On a very serious note, if you are interested in mission trips (domestic or international), let me know. I work with UMVIM and UMCOR through the United Methodist Church, including the trip to Haiti in October, and I would love to get you on a team. Big hugs and GOOD LUCK with your goals.
