  1. Wow! I'm so proud of you for mapping things out. It's always helped me to put things on paper (or the computer screen). That way you can see and remember when God answers your prayers. I have no doubt in my mind that you will meet each of the goals on your bucket list. Love you!

  2. I am Emma! I love your blog... I hope you will check out mine. . It is called Living Fully by Faith .


  3. I LOVE YOU GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    p.s. it's Rachel ;)

  4. We have such similar bucket lists! I especially love #39 & #51 ;) Love you!

    Your friend forever,

  5. This is so crazy! I follow you on Pinterest, but I just found out that you have a blog. :) I want to be a professional violinist also and I want at least 5 kids and I'm learning Chinese and want to go there someday!!! Haha! I just wanted to say that I think it's awesome that you wear skirts and are so open about it. I also decided to start wearing skirts a few years ago (although I sometimes wear baggy pants if I'm doing an outside activity(: ) and my mom started wearing them soon after me. I sometimes feel that I'm not as open about it as I should be because I don't want to offend people or make them think that I'm even weirder than I already know that I am. Haha! God bless! :)
