    Hey, I notice #101 on your list was ‘Clear up my skin’. I’ve been battling with acne for ages, tried heaps of different products then finally I went to my Dr. I’m finally seeing a difference. My advice, see your doctor sooner rather later as my skin really went outta control.

    i would love to make a bucket list but last time I had tried I was too specific it was almost impossible to be realistic. perhaps I’ll try again.

    lovely list though, I hope you fulfill them all!

      Thanks. I have written and rewritten my list so many times. This time around I’m taking it slower and trying to add in smaller goals that are easier to accomplish. Good luck with your list.

    Great goals….white water rafting is amazing…and I wish I could spend a year traveling. Maybe when I’m old? 🙂

    Hey what a great idea putting your bucket list on your blog. It’s inspired me to add mine to my own blog. I found your blog via NaBloPoMo which I’m also participating in this month. Happy Blogging!

    Touring a chocolate factory is my favorite item on your bucket list. I’d recommend this one, once it’s back up and running.
