I was reading one of the blogs I follow today and found out about this great idea, Mighty Life List. You make a list of 100 or so things you want to do before you go, some don't have to be so grand, just simple like bake a carrot cake.
So here is my Mighty Life List. Hopefully I will start to cross some of these off soon!
