The Final Countdown

In the fast-paced world we live in today, it’s easy to forget the things we once dreamed of doing when we were a kid. And as adults, we even lose sight of those little things in life that make life worth living in the first place. It’s my hope, that by sharing my own Final Countdown list, I can inspire you to revisit yours (or even create one if you haven’t already!).

But first, read my blog post about it here.

The Final Countdown:

1)        Travel to Ireland, Hungary, Germany, England, India, South America
2)       Go on an African Safari
3)       Learn to play guitar
4)       Sing in front of a crowd
5)       Graduate from a culinary school/program
6)       Do a triathlon
7)       Be an artist in an art show
8)       Have kids
9)       Hike a portion of the Appalachian trail
10)   Live in every different region of the country (so far we’ve lived in two)
11)   Start a food blog
12)   Start a business from home
13)   Grow a garden
14)   Rescue a farm animal
15)   Go in the Peace Corps
16)   Design and help build our own house
17)   Take a second honeymoon
18)   Start saving extra money for retirement
19)   Run a marathon for my 50th birthday
20)   Chris and I renew our vows every 5 years, in a different location each time

    So I’ve been thinking lately about how to be more awesome and I thought…I should write a bucket list. I think you are the only person I know with a published public bucket list so here I am. I love your blog Andria, keep the awesome food and life posts coming.

    • Aww, thanks girl! Busy life has been getting in the way of my posting frequency lately, but I have swarms of ideas thrashing about in my brain. I need to get them out before I got nuts! And I’d love to hear what some of your “bucket list” items are 🙂
