Bucket Lists

An October Bride

The first time I ever heard the phrase “bucket list” was when that movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman came out in 2007. I have no idea if that phrase was a thing before that movie or not, but I do know since time immemorial, people have been making them.

Maybe we don’t write them down. Maybe the list is simply something we’ve considered in our minds. But I think we all have at least one or two things we’d like to do before we “kick the bucket”.

It could be a place you want to travel or a relationship you want to mend or a big goal you want to achieve or a milestone you want to reach or any number of random or not-s0-random things.

I know I have them.

And so does one of the character’s in my very first novella, An October Bride.

In fact, this bucket list–which is accidentally discovered by main character, Emma Tate–instigates the entire story.

So I thought, since said story releases tomorrow (cue major excitement and nerves!), that it would be fun to talk about our bucket lists today.

What would be one or two things on YOUR bucket list?

An October Bride releases tomorrow, September 23, on e-book and audio book wherever e-books and audio books are sold. It will release in paperback format in conglomeration with A September Bride by Kathryn Springer and A November Bride by Beth Vogt in an omnibus titled Fall Brides. If you want to learn more about the story, please visit the An October Bride page on my website. I’d love to introduce you to Jake Sawyer, Emma Tate, and the quirky town of Mayfair, Wisconsin. I had such a fun time writing their story!

  1. One of the things on my bucket list was to get my motorcycle license and have my own bike. A couple of days ago my husband completely surprised me with a motorcycle sitting in our driveway. So now I have complete the rest of my list and get that license.
    I also want to see the redwoods.

    1. I’d like to have enough buck$ to take my family, my dad, my siblings and their spouses, their kids and grandkids and great grandkids to a lodge on Lake Superior near Duluth, Minnesota for a week of sight-seeing, meals, remembering, games, photos, viewing our family tree and watching and listening to the waves.
    2. Go to New York with my husband and visit the 9/11 memorial, art museums, the big bookstore; attend a couple Broadway plays and take a walk in Central Park.
