  • This is such a good list. Quite a few things on your list would be on my list as well. If I had a list like this. I have really want to learn to surf, I started to learn how to swim. It has been a while since I’ve practiced swimming.

  • I love going through people’s to-do lists because I think they tell you so much about a person! So many of your goals are going to be great seeing unfold on the blog! Wishing you luck!

  • Great list! I might have to steal some of these and add it to my list. Good luck with achieving your goals. What made you decide to create your list?

  • These are great goals and I love that some are sort of long term and others all you need is a day to complete! Good luck! <3 Bee

  • Awesome! I love my 101 in 1001 list because it gives my husband and I something to work on whenever we get bored!

  • You already have one down, so that’s an awesome start! I love #14! That’s such an awesome goal, for real. There are so many amazing people in the world, and meeting just one person new every month is so doable. I love #30! I feel like I would freak out if someone recognized me from my blog/vlog. Ah! Launching a floating lantern is on my bucket list! I want to do them at my wedding if they’re not complicated, but I’ll probably screw it up and catch myself on fire (probably just jinxed myself). Good luck with all of your goals! I’m excited to hear/see all of the stories of you accomplishing them.
