Bucket List 1.0

Fuji Hike

Countless people, including me!, often say things like, “Oh, that’s on my bucket list.” Well, while there were thoughts in my head about all that I wanted to do and “accomplish”, I realized I’d never sat down and actually written a tangible list. So, here’s the first edition. Like most aspects of my life, it’s a work in progress. #kaizen
