A Year In Review: My Faves and Living my Bucketlist

Ahh, another year nearly completed. I get very reflective this time of year, reflecting on what has made 2011 all this it has meant to me. This post includes a compilation of my bucket list experiences, favorite meals, songs, movies, YouTube videos, books, and websites/blogs. Friday's post will include all of my favorite memories! I hope they inspire you! I credit Today's Letters for inspiring this idea. Enjoy!
