Dee Dee’s Bucket List

I was cleaning my night stand and came across a notebook. Ever since I could remember, I have kept some form of a notebook/diary/journal. When I was a little girl, I always kept a diary, my mom bought them in bulk for some reason. Remember the diary notebooks with the lock and key? I had more than I should have and now I have no idea where they are. Sigh. As I looked through the journal, which was a spiral notebook from college, I realized that I have always created some form of a bucket list. Of course at the time, they weren’t called bucket lists, but we have since evolved. I decided to finally write a “current” bucket list that I can scratch off items and add items to as I live this crazy life.
