Kassi and Kayli from Truly Lovely have started a SUPER fun One Year Twenty Wishes party and I'm a co-host! Here is the idea behind it, from Kassi:
A few weeks ago I read a book. Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber. In short it’s about a group of ladies that each make a list of 20 Wishes. Things that they really want to do. Fun things. Happy things. Things like buying a pair of red cowboy boots or traveling to a foreign country. Not things they have to or ought to do… Like paying off bills, exercising more. Although a 5K might be a fun one.
So, what we’d like to do is write OUR own lists of Twenty Wishes. We’ve decided to put a time limit on it being twelve months starting in December… In other words you have twelve months to complete your twenty wishes. Then next December we’ll each write a new list.
Once a month from now on, starting in December, we’ll host another link up. One where you can write about the wish(es) you’ve accomplished over the last month. Kayli and I plan to photograph the completion of each of our wishes, so we have something concrete to look back on later! If you haven’t accomplished anything don’t fret… Some will take the full year I’m sure, and that’s OK. But the ENTIRE point is to do these things before next December because you never know how much time you have left.
Sounds fun, right? The hosts and co-hosts are the first 10 spots on the linky. It isn't required to follow anyone as part of this because that's not the point of this. LIVING is. But if you have some spare time to check out and follow the hosts/co-hosts, awesome! They are great bloggers!
So I now present to you my One Year Twenty Wishes list:
1. Participate in a 24 hour read-a-thon
2. Have a Disney movie marathon day with my husband and son
3. Write for 6 hours straight
4. Watch a football game
5. Hand make holiday décor for all the major holidays
6. Throw a party for no other reason than “it’s fun!”
7. Start a brand new family tradition (non-holiday related)
8. Attend a blogger meet up
9. Write a novel in a month
10. Tour my own city
11. Decorate and organize my dream craft room/office
12. Visit a spa
13. Read 6 classics I’ve never read
14. Come up with my own recipe
15. Make Ryan’s milestone book
16. Learn to make bread and jam
17. Have a day of random acts of kindness with Ryan
18. Decorate the play room
19. Go to Out of Africa
20. Visit 8 new restaurants
Once again, these are supposed to be WISHES. Fun things you want to do, not things you should or need to do. The list should make you excited about life!
So what are you waiting for? Write your list, link-up, grab a button, and fulfill those wishes!
