Mission: Bucket List

I know it's been awhile since I've posted an update here.  I'd like to get back on the wagon with it.  So here's the quick update.  I'm living in Kentucky, the little is happy and healthy, and I've fallen in love.

So, here's the deal.  I did not make any of the typical resolutions this New Year's.  Instead, I made only one, to check off at least one item on my bucket list per month.  I'll share that journey here in hopes that will make me accountable to stick with it.  I'm always adding to the list but I will include it here as it currently stands.

This list is a living breathing thing, always growing.

And of course I'll still share any other decadence I come across in life.

Take care my dears!
