  1. I noticed #27 on your bucket list is a meditative retreat. I am a Christian pastor’s wife and direct an annual retreat called Be Still Retreat. You are invited! http://www.bestillretreat.com or go to my FB page: Be Still Retreat/Beth Ladd (we have 3 dates/3 locations in WA, OR, ID and plan to add more in the future! the idea is to practice Psalm 46:10 which says: “Be still and know that I am God”) Hope you can join us!! …love your pictures and I am a grandma too!! doesn’t seem possible but time flies by! We are just finishing our Beth Moore Bible study (The Patriarchs) on Tuesday nights and as I look at your beautiful photos I have been blessed!! Thank you!!

  4. great list–i have notebooks of ideas and I’m going to start a list like this too.
    I’m a little ways from retirement, but I think I should start now!
    And I just did number 21 on your list last Fall! It was fun!

  5. Your list has made me too tired to continue, I think. :-)
    I sincerely hope you get to every single thing on that list!!

  7. I like this! I am going to make one for myself too!

  8. Interesting list. I did your #1 in 1999 for my fifth anniversary. Quite fun.

  9. Love #31 – I went on a trip to Nicaragua to deliver the boxes a few years ago. And after spending some time on the West Coast this fall, #15 looks pretty good too : )

  10. Great list. Love looking at other people’s bucketlists. Always manage to find another inspiration to add to my ever expanding one!

  11. Nice list, Maggie!
    I now feel I should write my own too :)

  12. This has reminded me to make a new one of my own. Thanks! We definitely overlap. I hope you get to accomplish many of these soon!

  13. Stand on the Equator?! I love that one :D

  14. For goodness sake, you have a lot crossed off already. You are one adventurous spirit!

  15. Great list! It is always great when you can cross something off and even greater when you can look back and relive those moments.

  16. Wow! What a great bucket list! Ever been to Belgium?

  17. Hi Maggie. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Great bucket list! Have you travelled to Australia? I didn’t see any Aussie adventures on your list, and I’m happy to suggest some :-)
