A life list...

Everyone needs to make a list. A list that will determine the life you want to live, the stories you want to be able to tell your grandchildren or to anyone who will listen. A list that will take you places but also help guide you through the amazing opportunities life has to offer. A list that will create beautiful memories and laughs for the ages. What kind of list is it...a list of things to do before you get too old to actually do any of the things on the list. Here is a small portion of mine. I hope you find some inspiration and create a list of your own.
