It is days like today that I tend to over-think my life. I don’t know where it is going to go, but I am excited to await the possibilities.
I have a list – as everyone typically does – of the things they would like to do before they die. A year ago this month, I scratched off one of the biggest dreams I’ve had. Last year, my mom, sister and I traveled down to Memphis to visit Elvis Presley’s Graceland. That trip was one of the greatest trips I have ever been on and San Francisco was definitely a close second.
I grew up watching Elvis and listening to his gospel and rock n’ roll music from my grandmother and mother. Watching his movies was always a wonderful experience. Visiting the same space as he spent his time was mind blowing and just something everyone should do one time in their life.
At first I was a little nervous. We all want our privacy and I wanted to be the most respectful I can be of the space that housed The King. But it was beautiful. If you haven’t gone, the trip has you a set with headphones that personally guide you through the house and outer buildings. I cannot even describe what I seen and I haven’t shared a lot of my photos that I’ve taken because you all should go and see the wonder yourself. Here is one of my favorites though….
I have a lot of places I would like to visit, including Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy, and Australia. But I am going to share with you a few of the things I would like to do before I die.
My list of where I would like to go/what I’d like to do before I “kick the bucket.”
1. If you know me. I love to do crazy things. One thing I would love to do before I die is to sky dive.
2. Along with number one, I would also love to bungee jump and/or cliff dive or BOTH!
3. Have you all seen the ABC show Nashville? You Should! But I would really love to sing one song on the The Blue Bird Cafe stage. No, I don’t think I can sing very well or would make a big to-do about it, but it would be a memory I would always cherish.
4. Speaking of Nashville, I would love to stay in Nashville and see the Grand Ole Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame, and walk down Music Row!
5. Lastly, I would love to one day open an inn on the east coast. This is a dream I’ve had since I was 16 years old.
I hope everyone has a list and would love to hear from anyone else about their list!
