10 Things I’ve Always Wanted to Do / Try

Thursday, June 8, 2017


This month’s topic for 10 on the 10th with Perfectly Port is 10 Things I’ve Always Wanted to Do / Try, which sounds like a great excuse to post a bucket list! A very cool website I recently came across is called My Bucket List Journey and on it the writer has a list of over 800 Bucket List Items she wants to complete – and many she has already completed! I have been meaning to write my own bucket list and this post prompt is a good way to get that started. I’ve also created a few bonus lists!
