Herein lies my Life List… or as I prefer to call it Life MENU. Why Life MENU? You can read about what inspired me to put this on paper/the interwebz right here. But this is my list… the things that help me look forward to the new, the exciting… things that make keep on dreamin’… I think it is important to always dream…

Things I’d Love To Do

– Do a daily photo challenge to document life. Say… 2…5 years? Life changes a lot in 5 years. I think seeing a daily visual life catalog could be mundane, but also moving…

Hang glide!

– Start a chick band.
– Learn to french braid
– Swing on a trapeze

Ways To Give Back

Give a bouquet to a stranger

Mondo Beyondo

– Walk the Great Wall of China
– Go on a safari… Africa, Australia. Either. Both.
– Host/star-in a tv show.
– Be in a movie. I’m serious.
– Do a Ted Talk.
– Take our (hub’s) family on a vacation. Treat them. Completely.
– Landscape our yard. If you’ve seen our land, you’d understand why this fits in MONDO BEYONDO.- Own a VW bug… an orange one. Or a beautiful, awesome blue. Or green. Heck – PURPLE! I don’t even care. I have ached for VW Beetle ownership since before I could drive. They are the adorable polka dots of transportation.

– Pay-off mortgage.

*This list is in no way complete. Or set in stone. I will add, and may even remove items. I don’t feel committed just because I said it once. This is something crafted for the purpose of pursuing joy.
