I hear a lot of people talking about their bucket-list.
Well, not being one to be willingly left out of a conversation, I want to talk about it too.
It was one of the things Alex and I first discussed when we started to court last year, “What’s your list?”
I guess you can learn a lot about a person by hearing what they want to do before they die, and I also suppose that he liked whatever it was I said because he answered, “Well, I’d like to do all those things too, with you.”
I also feel like I should mention that we have pretty tightly wrapped-up my bucket list, having done most of the things that were on it in the past year. True, I didn’t have anything really crazy like “skydive over the grand canyon”, but it’s still been a wild year of incredible happenings. Skinny dipping totally, absolutely and completely included.
I’ve had to write up a new list.
Here it is.
Babe – you getting this?
1) Go to the West. By plane, train or automobile, it doesn’t really matter. I just want to see West.
2) Have a baby. Yup. It’s on the list and now that I have a husband, we might actually be able to make that happen. Wowsers.
3) go to hear a symphony orchestra
4) learn to make pastry
5) whale watching
6) learn archery
7) learn to fly fish
8) write a book
9) try snowboarding
10) create a home-based business that actually works
Ok, so a little odd, slightly lame, I get it – but these are the things I want to do. I actually had a hard time coming up with this list because really, before I got married my secret bucket list was simply to find someone to share every day with, and now that I have that, my list remains just as simple; Live every day, sharing it with my best friend, perfect lover and husband. What better adventure could one ask for?
How about you? What’s on your List?
