The Bucket List (so far) as inspired by Karma Brown’s COME AWAY WITH ME

the bucket list

 

The other day- I saw this great post by Book Clubbish- which is a Harlequin website. They are sponsoring a COME AWAY WITH ME Bucket List Contest in honor of Karma Brown’s book (now in stores!) Since Harlequin is sponsoring this giveaway of 1 item from your bucket list to win (up to a 5,000 dollar value)- I’m entering and keeping my fingers crossed!

I love lists. I love paper. I love sparkly pens. I went to work. I thought for awhile about things I would love to do- and maybe I don’t do because I’m afraid or don’t have someone to do things with me (single, party of one).

But because a bucket list can be about confronting things- I dove headfirst into this and listed 10 for the time being (however this is a work in progress)

 

10 Bucket List Experiences:

  1. Travel to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, wear the beret, and be utterly excited that I am finally breathing Parisian air.

2. Learn to hula-dance in Hawaii.

3. Go see Niagara Falls.

4. Visit St. Augustine, Florida. As a child, I had no appreciation for being that close to Disney World and having to stop- as an adult, I think it would be lovely.

5. Wine trip to Napa Valley- to learn a deeper appreciation of wine.

6. Go to California. Dip my toes in the Pacific Ocean. Get a picture with the Hollywood sign. Eat at a In & Out for the first time… EVER.

7. Take my niece to Disney World- have breakfast with Cinderella and then ride all the rides.

8. Atlantis. A week of sun, sand, swimming with dolphins and taking time to recharge.

9. A Mediterranean Cruise. See new sights. Explore new locales. Taste new food. HEAVEN to me.

10. Savannah, Georgia. The literary aspect, the calm and serenity. Savannah is a place that I’ve wanted to travel to many times.

 

So, there you have it. 10 things on my bucket list. What is on your bucket list?

 

Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

    I want to go to Alaska! It looks so beautiful and peaceful there, and I’d love to go for a week or two of relaxation.

  2. I lived in California for a while and I loved it. I felt very calm and peaceful there.

    My family LOVES St. Augustine. That’s our go to vacation spot for a week or just a few days. We spent a week there in June and plan on going back in September for their 450th anniversary.

    Disney World is awesome! I’ve always wanted to visit Paris and Niagara Falls.

    Good luck!

    • So nice! I’m jealous abt St. Aug- we stayed there one night when I was 9-ish (we were on our way to Disney World- this was back when they were building MGM Studios!) I’ve longed to go back to Disney since.

      Thanks so much!

    This is a great list, T! I just have to comment on the Mediterranean cruise. We took one a few years ago – heaven! Every single bit of it! Good luck with winning and I hope you get to do each thing on your list!

    • Thank you SO much. I’m now jealous. I went on a cruise to Mexico and I really liked that- but I think a Med cruise would be even more fun! My fingers and toes are crossed that I win 🙂 🙂
