My Bucket List

Ever since the movie, Thee Bucket List, came out I have been compiling a mini list of things in my head that I would like to accomplish in my life.... This list is often changing, things are being added and often deleted...... the list is an ever growing compilation from my heart.

I hope you are a dreamer. too. I Hope that you dream big things that you want for yourself  :) I decided not long ago to not waste my days doing something that did not bring me joy and welp here I am. In Honduras. Loving on Some Kids...... hope your dreams take you to far away places and bring you lots of joy.

Here's to dreaming about the only two weeks that stand between now and Semana Santa (Spring Break).......
