Bucket List

Work Hard, Play Harder has always been my motto. While I would love to have my playground also be my office, for now I live behind a computer screen in a row of cubicles for 40 hours a week, doing something I love, while earning my adventure time. A girl can dream 🙂

My outgoing, adventurous personality has led me to meet new friends who encourage me to try lots of new things that I otherwise wouldn’t have thought to do. My obsession with Pinterest also doesn’t help calm my constant wanderlust and desire to push the envelope. More times than I can count, I’ve watched a TGR film, read a blog post or had a conversation with one of my traveling friends and thought to myself, “I should add that to my bucket list!”

So, without further ado, here is a list of things I want to accomplish. Many of them I’m working on and can get checked off soon; many are still in the dreamy “idea” stage. I’m a firm believer in trying anything once (unless it’s fish and I’m allergic to it), so here it goes!

  1. Climb all of Colorado’s 54 14er’s – I’ve completed 15 so far! (as of 8/8/15)
