101 Things to Do in 2022 - End of Year


Man, this year was so busy and full that it’s hard to believe everything that happened was all in 2022! The year started with some weird heart problems (that turned out to be nothing - I’m perfectly healthy!) and ended with the people I love.

Got to check a couple really bucket list items off the list like flying an airplane (never doing that again) and skydiving (probably never doing that again) and got to check some things off that I’ve always wanted to do but kept putting off, like visiting some local places.

I ended up having to edit my list a little this year do to unforeseen circumstances of the things I wanted to do (George Jones museum  - closed, Friends Experience in Nashville- they didn't end up coming, Nashville Christmas Parade - cancelled) but I still would say it was a great year of fun experiences!!
