Our Bucket List [Just For Fun]

Two words. Bucket List.

Our team wanted to share some of our bucket list items that we are dreaming about. As you can see below, our lists are just as diverse as our team! Check out the fun adventures we want to go on and the things we want to accomplish.


Get my PhD – it’s been a lifelong dream of mine to earn my PhD – something I hope to start working on within the next few years.

Publish a book- I love to write and hope to one day actually finish one of the hundreds of manuscripts I’ve started over the years – then somehow accomplish the Herculean task of getting it published.

Skydive- leap from a plane and feel the rush of life. Sounds fun.

I’ve always wanted to do a hot air balloon ride. I gave it as a gift to my son for his twelfth bday but he saw straight through it… i.e. that it was more for me than him…he got a Nintendo instead.  Ironically, last year, at the age of 27 he rode hot air balloon over the temples in Thailand.  I know I planted the seed!

I’d like to take the Great Books course at NWU.

Travel travel travel.  Anywhere! Especially to my ancestral countries, Denmark and Bohemia. And Machu Pichu.

Swim with the manatees.

Take a picture in front of the Leaning Tower of Niles and Leaning Tower of Pisa to see if anyone can tell the difference in the photos – I just discovered the Leaning Tower of Niles and am AMAZED.

Attend the Olympics (as a spectator, athleticism is not my calling)

Live out my Lizzie McGuire dreams and toss a coin in the Trevi fountain

Take a spontaneous trip somewhere. You know in the movies how people just walk up at the airport and say I want to go on the next flight wherever it goes, ya I want to do that. Who knows where it could take me?!
