I love a bucket list, don’t you? List’s are what keep me organised and on top of everything in day-to-day life. I keep lists for everything from what’s in my freezer to what blog posts and YouTube videos I need to write. Bucket list’s are a different kind of list, a bucket list is a collection of experiences or achievements that a person or a group of people hope to accomplish within a specific time-frame.
I try to write bucket lists at the start of each year, or just before I reach a milestone. My most recent bucket list was my summer holiday bucket list. I also wrote a bucket list on my 24th birthday, detailing everything I wanted to do or achieve before my 30th birthday.
2019 is just days away, so today I thought I’d share everything that we as a family hope to achieve over the next year. 2018 was a mixture of highs, lows and big changes. Mia started juniors school, Theo has thrived at infants school and I finally started to make our house a home. The list below includes both big achievements and little victories as well as memories we’d like to make.
