    I've had this goal for about a year. It's reminded me to practice drawing and sketching more than ever. I've renewed my love for lettering. It's given me a reason to practice circles, letters, lines, numbers, and phrases. Having this goa...

    I love to sketch. It's fun. It's a way to explore ideas. It improves my memory for a discussion or talk. It helps build consensus. I'm simply a visual person. I even sketched out my goals for 2015 instead of writing them down.  It's so m...

    This is an idea I had when I first arrived in San Jose from New York. As I drove around this suburban city, there were so many signs with bright colors and interesting script. Some strange, some beautiful. I just thought these signs were...

    I'd like to learn how to grill a perfect hamburger. I wrote this down as a goal in late 2014. It seemed like a simple thing. After all, how hard is it to grill a perfect hamburger. Actually, it isn't hard at all. I just had to get over t...

     Ever since the Model S was introduced, I have wanted to take one out for a test drive. I'm not the kind of person who test drives a lot of cars - I don't even know too much about cars, like I don't geek-out on them like...

    As part of an epic family road trip, we took time to travel through Yellowstone National Park. My favorite memory from this visit was waiting for Old Faithful to erupt. We arrived and sat down to wait for the eruption - a mere 45 minutes...

    My husband bought a jetski from his brother. We took it out on the lake near Sonora, CA - until the drought caused the state to close the lake to water vehicles. Many fun memories for our family on that jetski!

    I saw the Color Run goal posted on Bucketlist.org a few nights ago, and thought, "wow, I've always wanted to do that!" I remember driving around doing errands last year, se...

    Creating chalk art at a festival is something I've always pictured myself doing! I love to draw and sketch, and this goal would allow me to do a large format piece, in a community setting, for a fun cause (supporting my neighborhood!...

    In 2012, a partial solar eclipse occurred that could be observed from San Jose, California. My husband, Pat, went ahead and purchased a special lens, and a filter that could be placed on our telescope so that we could observe the moon cr...

    Sit down for dinner.  Learn about what is going on.  Hear stories about life and help my kids learn how to navigate and make sense of their experiences.My goal is to sit down for dinner at least 4 times per week as a family so ...

    We were about half way through first grade when our school had an open house night. I wanted to go, to meet the teachers in the next grade level, and see what kind of classwork my daughter would be doing in the next year. I walked into t...

    I've wanted to go on a ski trip with my family for a few years. My husband heard me talking about it again, and so he helped everyone get motivated and prepared for a fun day of skiing! I was worried we wouldn't find a good place...

     It was the most beautiful bright blue water I've ever seen.  I went with my girlfriends in college.  The sun was intense, and the architecture was bright white everywhere.

    My brother and I did a road trip from St. Louis to San Jose when I moved from NY to Califoria.  We took Route 66 wherever possible, and just imagined what it would be like to travel when that highway was first built.

    I lived in France for 9 months, in Versailles.  My friends and I would visit Paris as often as we could - and traveled around Europe during the year.

    For our 40th birthdays, my friend Michelle suggested we try surfing! It wasn't something I would have done on my own, and I was really happy she suggested it. We spent a long weekend in San Diego, having a great time in the beautiful...
