Birthday Bucket List

birthday bucket list round up
As more and more birthdays pass, life seems to get more and more predictable.  Where’s the excitement?  Where’s the spontaneity?  When I turned 30, I realized that I was eating at the same restaurants, driving the same routes, and doing the same routine everyday.  I needed to spice things up!  There were SO MANY things I wanted/needed to do…travel, learn, adventure!
With the help of our HowDoesShe Facebook fans, we’ve compiled the PERFECT birthday bucket list!  If you’re ready to step a little out of your comfort zone and have some fun, print this activity list and try completing as many of them as you can before your next birthday!

  1. Reconnect with a family member (estranged or separated by distance)
