Monday Muse

Today, I have been blogging 5 years....

Yes, folks, it is my 5 year blogiversary!

I started this blog a completely different person...and its amazing to look back and see all that has happened in the last five years.

I quit a job I'd had for 10 years.

I moved to the east coast.

I've had two children.

Its is no less amazing to see what I wanted that has NOT been accomplished.

I have NOT been published for my scrap art (ok...I haven't really TRIED all that hard, but still!)

I am still not a stay at home mom (for some reason, this title has the allure of "king of the world" for me.  I want it!)

I have not written a book - an idea that I have had since nearly the beginning of this blog.

While I would love to offer you a packet of goodies or a free tutorial, I have not prepared such bounty in time to actually do this blog post...

so...I will instead inspire you with my Monday Muse.  This one is about LISTS and LIFE...something that I find very appropriate on my 5 year blogiversary!

TODAY’s Monday muse is a TV show…its called the Buried Life.

Here is the premis:

Relying on goodwill, guts and gumption Duncan, Ben, Dave and Jonnie travel the globe in a purple transit bus to complete a list of ‘100 things to do before you die’ and to help and encourage others to go after their own lists. For every item they complete on their list, they help a stranger achieve one of their dreams. Everywhere they go they ask the question: What do you want to do before you die?

Here is a sample:



If you click HERE you can see their list. If you click on any crossed off item you can see a little video blog of the item being accomplished.

So…tell me…what’s on your list?

Obviously stay at home mom and write a book are on mine....

But, what do you want to do before you die? Have you tried to accomplish any of the things on it?

My husband is fond of saying, “You never know until you ask.” Have you asked anyone to help you finish any of the things on your list?

Tell me about it!

Happy Blogiversary! I love what you've written here. The video isn't working for me from this computer, so I'll definitely have to come back later to visit again.

Enjoy the Ride said...

I want to write a book (or three, or five or....), I want to be permanently at a healthy weight for my age and height, I want to visit every state in the U.S. and I want to be debt-free. Those are the major ones. There are other ones too... but those are the "biggies" on my bucket list.
