The Growing Bucket List

Photo credit goes to Alex over at Alex The Girl
A bucket list. Things to do before you die. Things to accomplish by X date. Challenges to cross off a list. Tasks you never thought you would successfully complete. A smile appears on my face when I take a peek at my bucket list. I see it constantly growing, and I am continually coming across things I want to add to the list that will challenge me, and at times, take me outside of my comfort zone. I don't have a set time frame for when I want to have everything checked off my list, but it does give me great joy and feelings of excitement and happiness when I get to cross off item after item of things I have done recently. So what is on my bucket list you might ask? Well, I recently added a few things to the list and thought it would be fun to share what all I have to look forward to doing and have successfully completed thus far! I would love to also hear what things are on YOUR bucket list and what all you have accomplished as well :)

But before sharing my bucket list with you, I wanted to take a quick minute to introduce you to Zelle over at A Southern Style! I had been following her blog for quite some time and was able to meet Zelle in person at the October Charlotte Social that you can read about here and instantly clicked and became friends (don't you love when that happens?)! Last night we went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner and chatted for hours about everything from blogging, to friends, to our living situations, jobs and fashion. She is just as sweet as she appears to be on her blog, if not more! I already adore this girl and can't wait to hang out with her more often. Oh and did I mention that she has her own Etsy jewelry shop? Be sure to check it out and give her some love.
