{this weekend} let’s make a list…

Image source unknown.

Or rather, let’s make THE list!

It’s been a rough week around here. Not necessarily bad, but I am exhausted. All. The. Time. No energy. I am not sure why, probably physical therapy for my knee – they’ve had me work at it pretty hard. Hopefully next week is better so I can find more energy to write and do things with my baby girls! Earlier this week, I ran into Nicole’s Lovely Life list, and loved everything about it – I’ve been wanting to create my own bucket list for a while, and seeing hers reminded me it was about time I do it!…and there it is! That list will probably change with time, but at least it will help me focus on all these dreams – it’s so easy to get caught up in the teeny weeny details of everyday life.

What about you, do you have a bucket list? What’s on it? I’m curious :) Have a lovely weekend!

    Great list – you just got me imspired :)

    Many of the points you’ve listed would be on my list too… I think careerwise, I would love to work full-time as a blogger – if only just for a year or two, while my kid(s) is/are small…
