My Life List – Updated

I’ve been doing a lot of research to make monthly life lists as inserts in my planner (my hobby) and decided to update my own life list, or bucket list, that I had created months ago. I saw one at Making It Lovely that had been sorted into categories and the Type A in me loves an organized list. So here it goes!
