Bucket List — evaluated

A bucket list update seems like an appropriate activity for new year contemplation. Especially after a year so epic.

Things completed or solidly begun in 2011:

#2: Master a second language. Chile: Spanish. Yes.
#4: Rainforest. Not necessarily tropical. But still epic and wet. Chile
#8: Marry. 3/18/2011.
#9: Baby. Begun.
#11: Visit South America. Only Chile. But that still counts.
#16: Study Abroad. Spring 2011. Epic.
#22: Hear God’s voice. My God is amazing.
#23: God is amazing. ”As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” Proverbs 27:19
#25: Fall madly in love. done. and grow old with that one. begun.
#36: Learn Spanish.
#48: Learn to pray better.
