Life List

I love life lists, getting to see all the fun and crazy things people want to do with their lives. I have been familiar with the idea for some time but was completely inspired to create on of my one when I was bopping around Kelly Whalen’s blog, The Centsible Life. So… what do I want to to do with my life? If you had caught me with this question three years ago I might have said, everything! But now I’m older and tireder (clearly) and now I just want to do nearly everything.
