“One’s title, even a title like president, says very little about how well one’s life has been led — and that no matter how much you’ve done, or how successful you’ve been, there’s always more to do, more to learn, more to achieve.” — Pres. Barack Obama
On New Year’s Eve 2009, 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.
We’ve had some ridiculous goals. Some achieved. Some not.
In 2012, we decided to start documenting our bucket list and their [hopeful] completion in this blog.
Who are we?
We continued to enjoy each other’s company through college, during which we both studied, worked, and eventually graduated.
One of us earned a degree in Physical Education, the other in Journalism/IT. In 2008, a few years after college and once we both acquired jobs that paid more than minimum wage, we decided to sign a marriage certificate and make it official.
Since 2008, we’ve traveled, adopted dogs, changed jobs, enjoyed time with our family, changed hair color, lost hair, reveled in being child free, encouraged each other, gotten pissed and given each other the silent treatment, laughed, and eaten a lot of pizza and French fries.
