Bucket List – 40 in 40

In 2012 which doing a 31 Day Reset through Happy Black Woman, I made a bucketlist. Upon review of said bucket list I realized it was slightly vague in some areas. I also realize that there were no time tables on some of these items. Timetables are helpful for actual accomplishment so I’ve revised the list, making it a little bit more fun and added a timetable for accomplishment. I will have the start date reflect when I began with the original list & include some of the things I’ve already done (nothing like seeing things crossed off to make for a happy day).

  2. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet can be much more useful than ever before.

    • Bienvenida! Thanks for stopping by Sarah. I’m glad you enjoy my blog and found it informational as well. I hope you come back and comment on what interests you.


  3. I LOVE this! Mostly because you’re going to do a lot of things that frighten you. I’ve been enjoying (and living vicariously through) your trips of the month and will be enjoying watching you cross things off of this list, too. :)
