  1. Love your list and your additions! Great job :)

  2. Sounds like "Bucket List".

    I would add

    Write a book.

    Get lost on a country road.

  3. On my blog, I have a list of 101 Things to do in 1001 Days that I am working on completing.
    From your list, I definitely want to go to Euro Disney someday. It wont be for awhile, because we are going to wait until we are done having kids AND until both kids are old enough to appreciate it. I also really want to see the Grand Canyon and go Rock Climbing.
    I live just a few hours from Niagara Falls, and thats where we went on our honeymoon!

  4. Thanks! I just played along on my blog.
