Our Family Bucket List for 2017

Happy New Year!


Phew. I took the last couple of weeks off from blogging and I think that (along with some other things) helped me transition into the new year…with new energy and ideas for this blog, new creative vision for my chef work and of course being armed with our family bucket list helps too!

Instead of resolutions or promises, I thought a Bucket List would be more fun and maybe, just maybe we could stick to them. I know how resolutions can be hard to achieve..I just hope we can cross of most of these adventures off this year!


Most of these things are activities we can do as a family…but there are a few for us parents to do together for crazy different dates.

And, I know most of these things are specific to where we live in Colorado…**search your local area or state chamber of commerce for ideas in your state!


So here she is…
