Holiday Bucket List 2017


Source: (@dametraveler)

I've had a lot of fun writing bucket lists for each season this year (summer, fall), and for Winter I need some things to look forward to more than ever. There are tons of fun Portland Christmas things to do, some of which are traditions with my family that I look forward to each year. Others on this list are to remind me to have fun, indulge, and enjoy this beautiful season. I know talking about 'slowing down' and 'self caring' is cliche and overused at this point, but I do find myself rushing through my days without pausing to reflect, assess, or just absorb. The Holidays seem like a good time to, cliche as it is, slow down.

Enough ado, here's what I'm looking forward to doing this season:

☑ Walk down Peacock Lane

☑ Watch the tree light up at Pioneer Square

☐ Decorate a tree

☑ Volunteer

☑ Bake some cookies

☑ Visit Santa

☐ Write Christmas cards for friends and family

☐ Watch Elf

☑ Enjoy some hot chocolate (maybe some drinking chocolate?)

☑ Enjoy a coffee from a local shop

☐ Go to a Christmas Bazaar

☑ Wear a bold lip color at least once
