50 Before 50 Bucket List

We all have hopes and dreams, big and little. Whether its to travel the World, become a parent, to live happy & healthy or to simply wish ‘THAT DRESS’ was in my size. Some goals may not be achievable for more reasons then one but we can give it a blooming good try. This life is only lived once so make sure its special. 

Make memories everyday, laugh, smile & pursue those wishes.

I love lists, I love (what I feel are) achievable challenges. I love setting goals so I made myself a bucket list. 50 things I want to do before i’m 50. I wrote it when I had my son at the age of 30 (I am now 32). 20 years where i’m expecting to have a child in tow, a tight budget & limited spare time! There are a mixture of little activities and a fewer bigger more expensive trips of a lifetime. My husband & I have also created a mini list of places & adventures we would like to do with our son – I will save that for another post!

Travel isn’t really my thing, in fact it’s often when my anxiety is at its highest and I have cancelled many days out, trips and holidays in the past. There are however places in the world I would love to see & sometimes you have to venture outside your comfort zone and push those boundaries.

Here is my 50 by 50 which I will document along the way. I would love to hear what would be on your list.
