Name two things on your bucket list   

Take a trip back to Southern California and hopefully visit some folks there who were in our church my husband and I knew in the early years of our marriage and having our kids. 

And maybe go back and visit some places out west like the Grand Canyon, Yosemite again, maybe with some of my kids and grandkids while I can still walk!
