Just Ask – The Bucket List Canon DSLR Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. The winning comment was from Jeannette at The Whimsical Cupcake. Congratulations, Jeannette and thank you to everyone who entered and shared their Bucket List!

By the time my brother was diagnosed with cancer, he was too sick to be able to mark some things off of his bucket list. I do think he lived with no regrets, but if he had to do it all over again, I bet he would have not put off the things he “hoped to do someday” and instead would have embraced the opportunities as soon as he could. He wasn’t given that chance, but guess what? Each and every one of us do have that chance. I’ve partnered with the organization, Just Ask, to help you start thinking about what’s on your Bucket List.

Our friends at Just Ask want you to stay around for a good long while so you can cross activities and achievements off that bucket list of yours. That’s why they’ve developed a test that could save your life—the BRACAnalysis test—by warning you about your chances of getting breast or ovarian cancer.

My Bucket List

I plan to be around for a really long time, which is a good thing because my Bucket List is quite lengthy. Here is my ever-evolving, always changing Bucket List:

1.  Travel Route 66  2.  Go to the airport, buy a ticket to the 1st place that tickles my fancy  3.  Host a summer solstice party  4.
