Everyone knows what a “Bucket List” is, and I’ve heard dozens of people say, “Ooh, that’s definitely on my Bucket List”, when an extravagant topic such as world travel or sky diving comes up.  But I would be willing to bet money that for most of these people its just a dream that they are too scared to make come true.  Well, I refuse to let that happen to me.  I refuse to let my life pass me by and frantically have to try to fit everything in when I’m old, or heaven forbid, ill.

How am I planning on making this happen?  Me and Ben are making a 2012 Bucket List.  Now when we are looking for something fun to get into we can try something new that we forgot we wanted to try and have lots of fun adventures in 2012.  Life is all about living for today and making the most out all situations!  We hope to complete all of the things on our list below, and we will update the list with our experiences as we do them!

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
