  29. Teach my 3 year old how to read
  30. (continue to find ways to) Honor my mother, father & grandmother

Living isn’t something we do accidentally. It is intentional. So, think of what you would like to accomplish this year and put it on paper (or your blog!). And, as you begin to cross things off, you’ll feel a sense of pride in the fact that you did what you said you were going to do and that you’re taking life by the reigns and are beginning to live. 

Is there anything I should add to my bucket list for next year?

Do you have a bucket list? If so, share your link with us in the comments! 

With Love,

  1. What an awesome list Brandi! These are all acts to be praised. Keep putting little steps into action to get there. Philippians 4:8-9 says it best–Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable…
