2014 Bucket List

I stole the idea of creating a yearly bucket list from Lesley at Bucket List Publications.  She creates a bucket list each year not because she’s dieing, but because she wants to live (her words).  I really enjoy watching her move through her bucket list each year and mine will pale in comparison, but one day I hope mine has as many adventures on it as hers does.  So, here is my 2014 bucket list (a couple are already completed).
