I love bucket lists! Well, I love any kind of list, period. Lists keep me organized, productive and give me a sense of accomplishment when I check items off. Even if you aren’t obsessed with lists, there is something to be said for being intentional about our time and enriching days with meaningful activities. That’s where a bucketlist comes in handy.
I wrote a Summer Bucketlist to help me intentionally focus on summer and the time I get to spend with my family. Now, I will be using this Winter Bucketlist to create memories and fill the days with special, season related activities.
I hope you join in on the fun!
