My 2018 RAD52in52 Bucket List
Every year, I make a list of 52 things I want to do that year (because 52 weeks in the year, although they aren't weekly items!) and it's become one of my favorite ongoing challenges. It's so fun to have a list of adventures, ideas, and goals in mind throughout the year. Something about having them all written out like this just makes me SO much more motivated to make things happen!
(I'll bold them when they are completed, and italicize them when they are in progress!)
