Bucket Lists



For today I'm going to go a little off topic and ask if anyone has/has ever made a bucket list? The two books I just finished reading (Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project and Noelle Hancock's My Year with Eleanor) are bucket list esque type memoirs and although I created my own bucket list at the start of summer, these books have inspired me to go even further with it.

So two questions for today: Do you have a bucket list? and Has a book ever inspired you to try something new/expand a project, etc?

Happy Monday readers and thank you for making this blog what it is becoming each day :)

  1. I do have a bucket list. The biggest task on there for me is to visit every state before I am 30. I am about half way done.

  3. Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. My book club read the Happiness Project this year. I think if I had that book way back when my kids were young, it would have been more helpful. Simple Abundance I found truly life changing for me when my kids were all in school and I was searching for me. I highly recommend it.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Pen and Paper.
    I've never had a bucket list as such though if I think about it to do so would surely be top of my list followed by learning to dance - easier said than done when you use crutches.
    As for a book ever inspiring me to try something new? Hmm, reading Donna Leon's books which are set in Venice inspired me to take a peek through our photo album, does that count?

  5. I don't have a formal bucket list but there definitely some things/places that I know I really want to do/see.

    Thanks so much for the award (sorry for the late reply but I've been travelling)!

  6. I do not have a bucket list but I think I might create one. Why not? It expands your imagination and answers the question "if you could do anything, what would it be?"

  8. Hi Christine, My apologies that this is the first time I've dropped by to say hello.

    Such an interesting post. Whilst I suppose I do have a bucket list in my mind, its nothing something I've ever written down. Perhaps I should.

    Anyway, lovely to have met you, I've enjoyed my visit. PW
