Bucket List

I’m a planner. I like to make to-do lists and set goals for myself, even if I don’t accomplish them. Without goals to work towards I feel like I’m drifting and I get stressed and don’t know what to do and end up laying in bed watching tv all day. But my goals are usually very short-term, never exceeding a few months. Jesse is also a planner, but he’s a long term “big picture” guy. When you combine us you have an excellent team with goals and plans for next week, a year from now and even 40 years from now. Jesse and I have amazing plans and a lot of them are things I’ve always dreamed of doing but never thought would happen. I’m starting to realize most of my dreams could actually be a reality one day, so I’ve written them down as a to-do list for my life and wanted to share them with you guys.
