  10. Fun list!

    I just wrote about my lifetime bucket list, but as far as my summer list goes, I'd liked to get some major work done on my family history memoir and catch up on my reading. I'm seven books behind right now. :)

    I'll be travelling for most of the summer, so my list includes visiting some little known areas of new countries, and not getting my luggage lost. :)
