Five Things on My Bucket List – #MFRWAuthor

For the #MFRWAuthor 52-Week Blog hop, this week, week 48, 5 Things on My Bucket List.

To be honest, I don’t really have a bucket list.  I’ve never really thought about what I would like to do before I die because it took so long to find something that I loved to do in the first place.
Reading has always been a comfort long before I started writing.  It still is.  Even though I have self-imposed deadlines, I make time to read.  Not only for inspiration but to churn ideas for future books.
So, because I love what I do, below are things I can think of off the top of my head for my bucket list:
Spend more quality time with my husband and our dog, Maddie.
Read as many books I can.
Find time to write all of the books I have ideas for.
But now that I think about it, maybe a European tour (England, Italy, Spain, Ireland, France).
Be happy.
Thank you for stopping by!!

    Great list! All very attainable goals which makes the list even better!

    “Be happy” sort of encapsulates everything, doesn’t it? Items on bucket lists are there because they’d make us happy.

      Yeah, but I figure happiness is a fleeting feeling and as long as I can have that moment once in a while, I’ll be good!

    Nice list! I hope to do #3, as well…too many stories rolling around in my head and my fingers type too slowly, lol.

    I love “be happy”. That is the top of my bucket list! You can have everything, but if you’re not happy, do you really have that much at all? Enjoyed your post.
