I Get Bucket(s) Lists

I love organization and I love lists. l love pretending that I'm super organized so I write things down in big to-do lists in order to see what needs to happen, where and by when. The problem is that I tend to make about 10 lists and I can never find the right one when I need it resulting in complete disarray. Regardless, my favorite and the most beautiful thing about lists, is being able to cross something off that list once you've accmomplished it. That epic moment of finally drawing a thick line through that one task, is so so freakin' fulfilling. That's why I like to write things that I've already done, so I can feel more accomplished than I really am. But that's neither here nor there.

Stay organized my friends

Because of my deep, deep love for lists, I have created a bucket list. It is my physical reminder to be intentional about living this beautiful life, not just existing. Some are childhood dreams and some just came to mind as I started jotting these numbers down. This is the list of all lists that I have ever written and I fully intend to do every single one of them. I will be adding more items as crazy little ideas come into my head and with a little help from Jesse and a lot of help from Jesus, I will be able to cross everything off of it!
