Why is a Life List better than a Bucket List? Better because the life list is of smaller, more achievable goals. My bucket list includes moving to the beach and visiting the real Taj Mahal, so the way I understand it, these are things I may reasonably be able to accomplish in the short-term, with a job, RA, 3 kids and all. So here goes, let me know what you think!
For the Love of Family…
Renew vows with my Superhubby in a casual beach ceremony
Stay awake during a Star Wars movie marathon hosted by my Superhubby
Make photo albums/memory books for each son (nope, I don’t have their baby books completed!)
Make memory book for Superhubby
Teach my kids to play piano
Make a clay handprint momento for me and grandmas (last one we made, we had only 2 kids)
More art time, I love watching kids and Superhubby paint!
Take more vacations with friends and family
Have a wicked cool 40th birthday party for Superhubby and I, and every milestone after that!

Well, there’s my life list of goals I would like to accomplish. I am sure there are more and I would love to hear from you as to what else I should add.
