buck·et list

  1. a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.
    “making this trip is the first thing on my bucket list”
    You hear the expression “bucket list” a lot these days. Everyone has hopes and dreams of certain things they want to accomplish before they hit the //bucket//. It is so important to feel fulfilled in life. There is nothing like being at peace with yourself and the way your life is progressing. NOTHING. I find my fulfillment through my love for Christ and my unending love to my family. But even I have a list of things I would love to accomplish during this short time on Earth! The Earth is gorgeous, wondrous, miraculous, amazing, splendorous!! The Earth is full of unending beauty and I sure as heck would love to see more of it. 

I don’t have a written list of things I want to accomplish, but I have a few things I have dreamed of accomplishing for a long, long, time. And I will. I just know it.

1. Visit the Amalfi Coast.

Amalfi, Italy. This place just seems magical to me. It is absolutely breath taking. I am half Italian which does make me want to visit my ancestral background.. the fact that this place is GORGEOUS definitely helps. Really, I would like to tour most of Italy. I want to be a full out tourist. Comfy shoes, camera strapped on my side and all. I want to see Rome, Florence, Sicily. I want to see it all. My mom and I talk about going “Talk” so maybe one day it will happen. I talk to Julian about my crazy traveling dreams, and he does indeed think I am crazy sometimes. He always says he has never met someone who thinks of somewhere else they want to go every other day. It may be true. I love traveling, and sometimes I get the travel bug BAD. 


2. Swim in a previous Olympic pool.

I want to swim in a pool where Olympians have swam. Is this one weird? HA. All of my readers know, I am obsessed with water and all that comes with it, especially swimming. I want to swim where people have made history in a swimming pool. Seeing a nice swimming pool just makes me giddy. Quick side note: last week we were giving ASU new ideas to improve the school, someone suggested a lazy river in the gym. Needless to say I was all for it, it did give me a good laugh too. 


3. Paris, France

What girl doesn’t dream of going to Paris. Honestly when I watched the movie Devil Wears Prada I was 1000% positive that I had to visit Paris. It had never really struck my fancy, but something about that movie made me know that Paris was going to be added to the bucket list. 

Before I Die, I Want To.....


That’s it for now lovelies. This girl has been putting homework off, and now I have to get to it while I enjoy my coffee and the morning sun. Until then! – Ashley
