Cover of The Bucket List

I’ve decided to  create a Bucket List (instead of just having the items bouncing around in my head)…I’ll add to or cross out as things progress…

  11. Open my own photography studio/business

    I like the following:

    #09 Write a novel and finish it — I’m already “writing” one, but need to “finish It.”
    #12 Finish my family tree — I’ve worked on mine since 1998 or before.
    #18 Lose 30 lbs. — I need to lose about 80.

    Also, what is the name of your design (template)? I want to use it or one a lot like it.

      I’ve been working on my family tree for a while now. I’m writing a novel, have started quite a few but never seem to finish. And as to the weight, I’ve lost about 5 lbs in the past month, so I’m doing good so far. 😀

      Her theme is Choco by .css {mayo}. When you scroll to the bottom, you can see the name of the template.

        Thanks. I guess I missed that or meant to get back to it and didn’t. I love this theme and once I can afford to customize it I’m going to. 😀

    #12…I have traced family history back to 1840. The difficult part is adding to the tree. A lot of babies popping into the family. I enjoy your blogs. Thank you for visiting mine, and the like on 2:00am text.

      You’re welcome. I have traced back to the middle of the 1800’s but haven’t been able to find out where in Scotland my Great (x5) came from. I’ll eventually find it, but for now I’ve begun research my mom’s side.
