  10. Wow! Y’all sure have done a lot. I need to create a bucket list. Definitely using yours as a guide!

    • I have so many more things to add to it but I panic when I see too many things not crossed off, so waiting until I have crossed a few more things off before adding those! There is just so much to do on this tiny island!
