Life List

I looked through Pinterest boards for ideas and found so many that I would already have crossed off--- be a main of honor in someone's wedding, buy a home, be in a flash mob, find the perfect wedding dress, see a drive-in movie, play with my love in the rain, fly in a small plane, etc.. I tried not to create a list full of things that I've done, but instead make a list of things to-do. I did keep some that have been accomplished, just because they were big things to cross off the list!

I've started with 101 things and hope to add and expand. Some are common and some may seem random. I also tried to keep things fairly realistic. Making a list of 25 famous people to meet isn't realistic in my book. These all seem pretty attainable. I made my list measurable. I didn't want things that include words such as "better" and "more" but instead create a list of definite goals.

1. Host Christmas for extended family
