In Celebration of our 100th Blog Posting, We Would Like To Share Our Bucket List.

>> Sunday, February 7, 2010


Well, we did it. One Hundred Posts. And as surprising as it is to you, it may be ever more surprising to us. If you take a look at the pace this blog began with, you would have been shocked if we made it to 30 postings, rather than 100. But, somewhere along the away, we got our second wind, this blog took on a life of its own and we stumbled into triple digits.

So, to celebrate, we have written a blog together. This is collectively, our bucket list. 100 things to do before you die. It is quite the collection of ideas. You will find mine (Addi's) in Blue, and Stevie's in Pink. As you would expect, our ideas for the same list differ quite a bit. Given the exact same topic, I chose to apply it to myself, and Stevie chose to doll out advice. Which exemplifies our personalities perfectly.
