Life To-Do List

A year or two ago, we started coming up with our ‘Life To-Do List’ (also called a Bucket List) together one rainy afternoon when we’d run out of other things to do. We had fun brainstorming our must-do activities for our life together, but then kind of forgot about the list until we stumbled back across it yesterday. It’s by no means a complete list. It will be ever growing, ever changing and evolving, but here’s what we have so far!
