1. Well done with your list, Christie! I hope you’ll have perfect weather for your visit to the Midway Ice Castles. Congrats on your 20th wedding anniversary!

  2. Hi, Christie – I always find your Bucket List Updates to be very inspiring — and this one was no exception. Thank you for visiting Sweet Peas & Saffron. I have already made many tasty, healthy recipes from that site. 🙂

  3. Bonjour Christie!

    Thank you so much for featuring our blog post of suggested Ted Talks as part of your winter bucket list! If you’re looking for more ways to engage with French, we have a couple other posts I think might strike your fancy 🙂 Practicing French… Outside the Classroom and our podcast series will both give you options to help with your audio comprehension (in the same way an audiobook might).

    Bien à vous et bonne journée,

    • Bonjour Ingrid! I am loving the suggested Ted Talks, both for the opportunity to listen to native French speakers and for the amazing content.I will definitely check out the other posts you’ve recommended. Merci!

    • Thank you Jackie. I started running 12 years ago. I started with a marathon and have worked my way down to halves and now 10ks. I usually finish solidly in the middle of my age group, so I’m not breaking any records, but I do enjoy it.

  4. I don’t have a bucket list, per se, but I do have a couple of challenges in place. I’m doing the #stitch9challenge on Instagram and Goodreads Reading Challenge. I’ve blogged about both of these. Check them out and maybe you’ll add me to your list of new blogs to follow.

  5. Playing catch-up on my blog reading. Hate to fall behind because it is so hard to get everything read that I want to read. You are making terrific progress on your list. Glad you enjoyed time with your MIL. I was supposed to have visited my in-laws shortly before Christmas but with my mom’s health issues, I wound up staying with her instead.

    So glad you have purchased the tickets for the ice castle event. I cannot wait to see pics. I remember this activity was on your list last year and I was looking forward to learning more about it then. I know you were disappointed that you didn’t make it in 2018.

    My word of the year is peace – repeat from last year. I have learned a few things about seeking peace in this first month of 2019 and realize I went about it all wrong last year. Love the idea of catching your breath while you wash your hands. I am going to borrow this in hopes of making it a habit as you have.

    Congratulations on your 20th anniversary. Hope you are reading this from Mazatlan. Or at least will soon be there enjoying sun and family.

    • Welcome back Leslie. I hope all is well with you and your mom and that you are finding your way to peace. I love that word choice. The Ice Castles were amazing. I’ll share some photos on my next update. Larry and I celebrated our anniversary close to home, but we are planning our Mazatlan trip with the family for June. Now that we’re in the gloomiest part of winter, it is even more enticing. Enjoy your week, Leslie!
