Our Bucket List {2017}

Each year we create a bucket list of things we’d like to do and achieve throughout the year. It’s been a tradition for the last two years and gives us something to aim for and acts as the ultimate to-do list with achievable goals.

Here’s our list for 2017:

Our Bucket List {2017}

The list has a mixture of things for the whole family. It includes days out and holidays but also has things to do at home. practical things and personal things. It also has things I’d like to cook, big adventures and just little experiences for us as a family – or a couple – to enjoy.

I love having a bucket list and am already excited about this year and the places it will take us. This year is the start of something new for us – it’s the start of the rest of our life together, one where I don’t have a day job and so can be more flexible. We’re hoping to fit much more in as a family around Hubby’s shifts this year and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. I’ll update monthly to let you know how we’re getting on!

If you’d like to create your own list and are looking for inspiration you can take a look at our 2015 Bucket List and 2016 Bucket List to give you some ideas.

    Some great stuff on there. I failed miserably at mine last year so am in two minds whether to do one πŸ€”

    I love the little things you have planned. Make a trifle, lay on the grass, buy flowers…..Life’s simple pleasures πŸ™‚ x

    And now you’ve got me all worked up about needing a bucket list! I’m going to write one too. Love this Donna…especially the cinnamon swirls (my favourite!). xx

    I love your bucket lists! I don’t really have a bucket list but it’s great to set aims for lovely things you want to do during the year to make sure you do them.

    Great list! I wouldn’t mind doing a few things on there myself! As for conferences, I highly recommend blogtacular, it’s very creative, incredibly inspiring and from what I can gather, quite different from other blogging conferences. Oh, and this is the only cinnamon swirl recipe you ever need. They are amazing! http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/cinammon_rolls_/

    I have a bucket list for life after my friend passed away in November. She loved and lived everything and every moment and she really inspired me to do the same. It’s a fab idea to break it all down into years though!

    I love your yearly bucket lists as they are a great mix of things to achieve. Some need a little more planning (go to France) and others just involve turning the oven on. Looking forward to reading to see how you get on x

    I’m still working on my family bucket list – there’s a lot of things we want to get done this year so trying to narrow it down to achievable goals! lol
