I am stealing this idea from Annie and sharing my reverse bucket list! We all know what bucket lists are, but this one is different because it’s sharing things you have already done. It is great to check things off of a list, but we don’t always think back to the great things we have accomplished in life. Sometimes life gets so busy or we get stressed and we forget all of the blessings life has given us.
Got married! Less than a year ago I became a wife and it’s been an amazing experience. I had my fears but Dave has shown me so much grace and love through our relationship, I don’t know where I would be without him. We have only just begun our marriage and it’s going to be quite the adventure.
Went to a live taping. We went to a taping of The Price is Right and it was such a fun experience! We waited in line for hours and the taping was only an hour and a half long, but we danced, cheered and acted crazy in the audience. The guy next to us was from the same area of Baltimore as us, and he was chosen to be a contestant!
Traveled (some of) the world. This is always a work in progress but I’m happy with the 10+ countries I have visited so far. I’m excited for the adventures that are still to come, and the lessons I still have to learn. Traveling was always important to me, but I had no idea we would actually be able to do this much.
Faced my horseback riding fears. I have never been a fan of horses, but I sucked it up and went for a horseback ride in California. The entire ride up the Hollywood hills was amazing, but then the ride down showed my reasons of fearing horses when it tired to jump off the side of the mountain…literally. Now I am fearful again, BUT I tried!
Moving out. I talked about doing this since I turned 18, but it wasn’t something I needed to do. A month after I turned 21 it had a feeling it was time and I moved into my own house. We both live in that house now, and it’s still in the process of becoming a home.
Rescued SharkBait. This little gal was a surprise because I never liked cats, I was adamant about my dislike of cats. But when I moved, I knew I didn’t want to always be alone and every sound would scare me…so we got SharkBait! I have been loving her ever since.
Started a business. This was something that never crossed my mind, I never thought I would be a business owner, and I didn’t think I would do it with my mom, but here we are. I am so excited for the weddings we have coming up and to see where this takes us.
Friendships. I have made new friends and continued to grown friendships from when I was younger. There have been some amazing people in my life that have stuck around through it all, and I couldn’t be more thankful for that love and support, I have also made amazing friends from blogging, through Dave’s friends, and through creatives.
Started and kept up this blog. This is another shocker for me. 5 years age I didn’t even understand blogging, I had no idea why people would read blogs, let alone take the time to write them. I have dedicated myself beyond anything I could have imagined and I love it!
Swam with sharks. This was so much fun and fed my obsession with sharks. My mom and I went during one of our trips to California and had a great time. The water was a bit very cold, but it was so worth the fear and frozen fingers.
I would love to see your reverse bucket list! It’s really fun to see what people have done that we might not know about!
