my bucket (list) is filled with toys

The problem with a bucket list after you have children, is the fact that you have children. Choosing between planning a trip for Brian and I, versus taking the girls somewhere like Disneyland is a difficult one. We can’t afford the luxury of taking a lot of big vacations so when we plan something, a lot of thinking goes into the decision. Followed by a lot of guilt if we decide to not take them. But at the same time, just because we are parents doesn’t mean we can’t still have goals and dreams and well…. bucket lists! I am determined to start checking off some boxes of mine!

This is list is mostly for me to keep track but here it is – in no particular order – below
