I know that I have spent a lot of time in recent months thinking about LIFE – and decided that it was TIME to really make a dream book – a BUCKET LIST BOOK! We will start with a “travel notebook” and fill it with pages of Bucket list items. (This is also the Saturday before my birthday . . . so there really is no better time for this project. AND we will have CAKE during class! YUM!)
