The 40th Bucket List of Evolution

I found an old bucket list that I put together for my 40th Birthday. The list was to get me excited about life and charged about being an empty nester. I was feeling a little down recently about all the things, I didn’t manage to do this last year. Then when I look at what I have done in the last 5 years.

All I can say is wow!

This is just the list from my 40th there are other lists  hidden away too that I will save for a rainy day pick me up:)

This was really the mid winter boost I needed and it  makes me feel like I had accomplished something. I spent the morning taking a trip down memory lane, reading old blog posts about my adventures and looking at some of the photo’s. I don’t really believe in New Year’s resolutions but I would highly suggest a Bucket List of Evolution that will fulfill your life and keep you reaching for the moon.

I know some feel like that Bucket Lists are silly but after this experience I am SOLD.

“The one that blew me away was visiting the icebergs, I

was told there would be no icebergs in August.

Then there wasn’t one there were several, waiting!



I tracked the icebergs for four months on 

you should have heard me scream for joy when I saw this iceberg!”
