  1. Oh Kaitlin,

    I absolutely love your bucket list. I’ve actually been meaning to write mine down and post it somewhere so I can start crossing it off. Funny thing is, there are many many things on your list that are on mine, which made me laugh a lot. #11 (the house) theres so much about it that I am in complete agreement about, I want most of that too! :) About #10, I’m taking a class through my church, Financial Peace University, and oh my goodness its fantastic. I’m learning sooo stinkin much about fincances and budgeting! I was so excited about it that I even made my own spreadsheet so that it’d be easier to do. Lets just say I’m a little bit of a nerd. Actually kind of a huge closet nerd who comes out when theres budgets to be worked on ;) As for #39…all ya gotta do is come visit me and we can hit up: Cape Cod, Boston, NY, Ben&Jerry’s Factory (that’s not on your list but I think you’d love it anyways – Vermont…haven’t been to the factory yet but its ice cream..what’s not to love?

    Love always,


    1. Oh Lizzy, ;)

      I love you! haha this is great! I had so much fun putting together my bucket list because it really made me think about what I wanted to do and the legacy that I want to leave. So awesome! I finally had to cut myself off! haha I know I know! I will definitely be coming to visit you and we will hit it all up! ummm and I would love to go to Vermont… makes me want to watch White Christmas just thinking about it…. Ben & Jerry’s Factory? ohhh dear sounds glorious! hahahaha :) I think that you should definitely write one up and post it on your blog… mostly cause I want to read it and… possibly glean ideas off of it! haha! Now that I’ve written up a bucket list I think I want to do a dream board… I’ve never actually done one and I think it would be huge for me right now! :) Miss you, love you, skype soon and or phone date??


    1. haha the funny thing is that I totally know where the Thornewood castle is… I found it last summer when I was looking up stuff for the district office haha and if you have ever seen any Stephen King movies this castle was the castle from that movie… :)

      Do it that will be super amazing… oh dear but… I’ve started using Evernote… hahaha :)

      Love you so very much!! <3
