  1. Cheryl,

    I can help you accomplish two of your goals:

    1.) Let’s work on pictures again this summer

    2.) I’d be glad to take a look at your office and give you my input on organization.

    Let’s stay in contact this summer – so much to do, so little time!!!

    Wishing you many happy hours of fulfilling your bucket list dreams,

    1. Kathy,
      I will DEFINITELY take you up on your offers! My office could use your input 🙂
      I would love to get together again to work on our pictures – I had a great time last year and that may be just the break I will need to get away from the knitting needles for awhile!

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    this is awesome, I’m so impressed!

    1. Kriszti – thanks for taking a look! Let me know if you want to join me in any of these Bucket List items!
      How about training for a marathon together???
