Bucket List


It’s the start of a New Year and that means it’s time to write out a list of things to accomplish in the year’s ahead.  I thought if I put a Bucket List as a page item and cross off things as I accomplish them, it’d be a fun journey.  This list isn’t just for the year ahead, but throughout my year’s ahead.

Hot Air Balloon Rides

If you’ve been reading my blog for some time you know a few things about me:

I love food.

I love wine.

I love new experiences.

I love to travel. 

This list is going to have a bit of all those things included in it.  I will also be adding things in as I think of them.  My goal of this list is to add experiences in that I’ve always wanted to try, and things that I know I’ll even be doing in the year ahead.  Nothing’s more fun than being able to cross something off a list.

So, here it is.  Jamie’s “Bucket List” of fun:
