We are Lyssa Walker White and Kris White, a married couple living in the suburbs of our nation’s capital. We are activists, former business owners, goal getters, volunteers, joy seekers, professionals, and podcasters. We try to live life with a commitment to self-improvement, a passion for experiencing new things, intentionality, and most importantly, gratitude — a lifestyle and mindset we hope infects our community of followers as they navigate this life. And despite all of this new age-sounding consciousness bullshit, we don’t take ourselves very seriously — offering a healthy roasting of each other along the way.
It all started on New Year’s Eve, 2009, when we decided to come up with goals, not resolutions, for the year ahead. We wanted to take more control over our lives instead of sitting back and just letting life happen to us or pass us by. We wanted to live more intentionally. Every year since, we’ve created a yearly bucket list then encouraged each other and worked toward achieving them throughout the year.
In 2012, we started to document our bucket list journey and their [hopeful] completion in this blog.
