Ninety-nine Memorable Experiences (Kind of like a Bucket list)

memorable experiences

I have been meaning to play along to this fun post for ages. I've just been waiting for the right why not now? It's a great way to begin a fun weekend.

I originally spotted this post and idea on Letters from Coco, who got it from Julia at World is my Oyster, who got it from Stars Pink World.....anyways, you get the idea. It's kind of like a bucket list. I don't know where the list started, but it's something to think about and have fun with.
It's a list of 99 memorable experiences, and you highlight the things you've done or accomplished in your life.
