Big Birthdays & Bucket Lists & Me (on Stacy Julian's podcast!)

A few months ago, I mentioned that Stacy Julian had a new podcast called Exactly Enough Time. Have you listened to it yet?

I've enjoyed each episode, but I'm especially excited about today's episode (#34) because I got to be Stacy's guest as we discussed Big Birthdays (I turned 50 in July) and Bucket Lists (like my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list) ... and it was so much FUN!!

If you've been following along as I worked on my list of things to do the past five years, you'll likely hear a few familiar stories. You'll also get to hear Stacy define what a bucket list is, share a few items on the list she's creating for herself, and maybe even (like me) add a new movie to your to-watch list!

Here are links to a few of the things we discussed on the podcast:

My Library of Memories System - I wrote this post (on my then very new blog) explaining how I set up my Library of Memories system during that first class I took from Stacy back in 2010.

It Wasn't On My Bucket List mini-album - The album that sparked the idea for my 50 things list.

My 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 List - Here you can find each item on my list with links to the posts about the items I completed. Obviously we did not have time to discuss each item on the podcast, but it was so much FUN to share about our minion Easter eggsour glamping adventure at Raven's Nest Nature Sanctuary, not really learning how to play the piano, going on an Alaskan Adventure and a trip to Europe, keeping a gratitude journal, and reading the Bible (again) and all those Pulitzers.

My Book Recommendations:
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 6x12 mini-album - The papers for this album are actually We R Memory Keepers (not Authentique like I mentioned on the podcast).

After listening to the podcast, I hope you'll be inspired to create a bucket list of some sort - whether it's for five years or six months or any time period that works for you! I'll be sharing more about my one-year While I'm 50 Bullet Journal in an upcoming post.


  1. So fun to hear your voice in my craft room in London! You did a great job!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
