Bucket List

Dear Life,

I have a dear friend who has seen a lot of the world, lived in a lot of places, and done a lot of things.  Years ago I didn't have the desire to travel, I was content to let her have the adventures.  I didn't think I would mind...I had my children and a whole different world going on.  I have discovered that my desire to see the world has changed.  Blame it on the books I love to read....historical fiction has broadened my horizon...and really given me a desire to see more of the world. 

I haven't even seen the Grand Canyon for heaven's sake.

I have been to New York, and I've seen a small slice of Florida.  I've been to Utah, and I've been to Vegas.  I've been to Ohio and I even lived in Alabama for a bit.  Oh and I do get to go to Hawaii (finally). That's it.  I want to see the south, I want to see Chicago, I want to see DC, I want to see Virginia, I want to see historical EVERYTHING.  But what calls me more than that is the rest of the world:  














 To name a few.  I really want to make this bucket list a reality.  I love history so much....and to see where things see the places where events changed the whole world...would change me, I just know it.  

What's on your list?
