Our Boston Bucket Update- 100 days to go!

We are currently 100 days out from when we are planning on closing on selling our house and moving to Florida. Yay!!!

I seriously can’t wait. To be honest, I’m really depressed now with a lot of things and the only thing keeping me from not doing this to Boston is looking forward to checking things off this list. It’s helping keep things fun when I just want to wear my pajamas 24/7 while watching every Meg Ryan movie ever over and over again while eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on Wonderbread. With wine.

That being said, we have been working on our Boston Bucket List! It’s been fun to visit places again or for the first time. It is keeping our weekends fun and busy.

Here is an update on our progress.
