Started and maintained a blog- In June of 2014 I hit publish on my very first post on Dream Big and Buy the Shoes and am proudly working on hitting my 3rd blogiversary mark this year. I love this blog and what it has come to be for me. My only goal when I started was to make one person a day smile, and the comments that I receive tell me I'm doing that...and a bit more. I can't thank this community enough for turning a small hobby into a big dream come true for me. I love my little space on the Internet!
Got married- I mean, it's great that I found someone to put up with all sorts of my craziness (see above). I feel like I can compare it to skydiving, since that's also something I want to do. All this fun and excitement is built up and then it comes and your knees start to shake. You walk down the aisle (or jump out of a plane) and realize it's not so bad and then you go back to celebrating. Woo-hoo! You did it, and now it's all over.
Featured in a magazine-Since I was a young girl writing stories I have dreamt of having something featured in a magazine. I had two recipes featured in Holl and Lane Magazine in 2016 which was pretty cool. If you haven't heard of Holl and Lane, I suggest you check their unique, beautiful stories out some time. They have a blog as well which is equally as great.
Opened an Etsy shop-The Dreamy Details is officially a shop. While I haven't found the most successful way to advertise the shop and everything I'm capable of doing, I seem to get the most requests by word of mouth and things I don't even process through Etsy...which is fine by me. I love making signs, inspirational posters or things for your desk, and creating invitations or special pieces for events.
Traveled to some fun cities- Las Vegas, New York City, Miami, Chicago, and Boston just to name a few. I'm really excited to plan trips to some others as the years go on...I would love to see Nashville, and Salt Lake City and of course Los Angeles and San Francisco and New Orleans too. If only money grew on trees :)
It's pretty fun to sit down and make a list of all the things I've already done so far. The awesome things is that there's a lot of time left to do many more things that are on my list. Some of my bucket list items are actually on my 101 in 1001 which I'm making pretty good progress on.
What are some things that are on your Reverse Bucket List? Do you have a 101 in 1001?
