I like to make these lists every birthday. They are mostly just small tasks/adventures that don’t really make the cut as far as my quarterly goal lists go, but they are things I want to incorporate in my life just the same. Some of these goals are steps in the bigger picture plans, but most are not. I think it’s fun to have a yearly “bucket list” to keep life fun and interesting.

Cheers to another year of good living!

    i like the idea of a bucket list. I don’t currently have one but there’s quite a few things I could put on one. This inspires me to do it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh, please adopt a puppy! There are so many that are in need of homes. Great bucket list for being 35. I’ll be 35 next year.

    Great idea to have a special list every Birthday. I agree these are mostly small tasks which you can set easily & get it done. I would love “Outdoor Yoga” & also do “Volunteer work”.

    Congratulations! You have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award. You can see your nomination here

  5. What a great idea! I like this better than a New Year’s resolution because it’s on your birthday! It’s a mix really between a bucket list and resolution. I especially like 29., one of our family goals, 30. 11.. 14. is a must! Our boy Bailey is our first born aka puppy going on 7. Our family wouldn’t be the same without him!

    This is SUCH a great idea! Do you mind if I use it when my birthday comes around in a few weeks? I’ve decided to go the YouTube route instead of blogging now. I could change my mind again in a few days because that happens a lot, but I just can’t get myself motivated to write. Now talk, I can do that for dayyyyyyyys. Miss your face! Claire may be coming to the wedding, you should hitch a ride. 😀
