Since starting the blog, we have had the opportunity to do so many amazing things. We thought it would be fun to start a blog bucket list. A list of the crazy adventures and random things we have done since we started blogging. We honestly never imagined when we started the blog that we would have the opportunity to do so many crazy amazing things. We thought we would just type a bit and share our story. We feel so blessed that we get to experience these things together and hope you enjoy our random blog bucket list.
