the bucket list giveaway


A seventeen-prize giveaway. For you. To celebrate this glorious summer, to celebrate my graduation, to celebrate hitting one thousand followers, and to celebrate living life in general. : )

You've probably heard me talk about my bucket list. Sometimes I create and check off bucket list items as I do them, but I do have a written list in black pen in a pink notebook. This week I'll try to post an edited version. : )Anyways--I'm a big fan of lists in general, and living life to the hilt, and traveling, and elephants... and yeah.

I never, ever thought I'd have even two hundred readers. Basically, you're awesome and I love you. So I have seventeen prizes for you readers, who make my life so happy. I hope you like them as much as I do...

And Seattle. Oh yeah. :D And hey, while I'm at it, I might as well go to Israel, England, Russia, and Germany [more specifically, the Black Forest in Germany].
    Even if I don't go to all of those [which is likely, but hey, one can dream], I MUST go to France. Must. I'm not allowed to die until I go there. ;)
