my bucket list

Here's my bucket list. I believe in dreaming big and chasing those dreams (if they are for the glory of God, however). I hope to accomplish all of the following before I die. But if I don't? That's okay. God's still got a lot in store for me ☺.

{p.s. May I mention how fun it was to make this bucket list? I stole a few of these from God's Daughter, Dramatic Elegance, and Life is Too Short Not to Wear Red Shoes
