Mother / Daughter Bucket List

I lived in Colorado for a few short years, and over that stretch of time I noticed the time I didn’t have my mother. She came and visited along with my aunt (who else was like a mother figure) and I drove around town showing them new places that we haven’t been together before. It was great! I felt like I was giving them a tour guide of the city. It was the weekend of mothers day when they both arrived I haven’t bought any Mother’s Day gifts and I’m happy I didn’t. 

Side by side we walked up and down Old Colorado City in Colorado Springs. One of the stores we stopped in, my mother was looking at something every specific she wanted. I offered to buy it for her. She of course, wouldn’t let me. I told her repeatedly to allow me to, It’s your Mothers Day gift! She agreed. Next store, my aunt and I did the same thing to each other. It was a fun game all afternoon. “My treat” we would say as soon as we caught the other person eyeing a product they wanted. This continued all afternoon. It was something new we never experienced in a new city we haven’t been to. 

Thinking how much fun we had and how great it was to experience a new state with each other, a bucket list popped into mind. A list has been growing in my mind of what we can do to add some adventure into our lives. Even though I labeled it Mother / Daughter, that doesn’t mean it has to be your natural born mother. Try it with a mother like figure in your life. As a bucket list can grow, there is no time limit deadline on love.

  1. Travel to another state
  2. Visit to a city you both have never been

    1. Those are great suggestions, thank you! I love pottery and Pinterest is one of my favorite “go-to’s” as well for ideas.

  1. What a great idea. I’m moving toward working on my personal bucket list. I love the idea of doing one with my mother while she’s still alive.
