I hope you all had an amazing weekend. My energy is gone after we spent the weekend moving to our new house.
I strongly believe in “choosing your attitude,” so I did my best to not be nasty the entire weekend. Not to be upset, annoyed, or be short with my husband, even though I think moving can bring out the worst in folks. Additionally, I can’t complain because I was so fortunate to have not only my husband helping me carry all the big stuff, but a good friend and my brother helping to get things from the apartment to the house.
My Bucket List
I was named after a Stevie Wonder song. I walked down the aisle with my father to “My Cherie Amour”. After me and Austin were pronounced husband and Cheri, we recessed to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” Basically, what I’m saying here is that Stevie Wonder has been a part of my life since I was in utero.
When I was a kid, my dad had this album called “Natural Wonder,” which was a live concert album that Stevie Wonder released I want to say in 1995. The album was magic, wonderful, and featured a few new songs on it. It was really cool to hear the audience, a Japanese audience, go crazy over his songs, and sing the words like English wasn’t no thang to them. Which it probably wasn’t – I sometimes feel like every other country in the world gets this ridiculous to learn their first language and English as a second, so that foreign students always seemed so much cooler than we do, swapping effortlessly back and forth between their language and English.
So all the above to say that seeing Stevie Wonder perform live has been a bucket list item of mine basically my entire life. And Thursday morning, Mr. Steveland Morris announced that he would be touring his 1976 album, Songs in the Key of Life.
This is so epic. Beyond epic.
So naturally, I called my father, and called my sister and immediately put plans into place for us to make the Atlanta show on November 22nd. And like that (provided I can get my butt to Atlanta) I believe I’m on my way to crossing an item off my bucket list.
What’s one item on your bucket list?

Your new house is soooo cute! I love it! One item on my bucket list is running the boston marathon and come next spring…. I can FINALLY check it off my list!
Thank you! Love the house, but now I’m loving getting to set it up and stuff. I still don’t feel like a grownup all the way which is the funniest part 🙂
AHHHHH you have to keep us posted on how the training for that is going!
Stevie Wonder is awesome! Have a blast at the concert :0) A bucket list item of mine is to do a half ironman!
I would LOVE to do a half Ironman – feel like that would entail a WHOLE ton of training for me, but I’d be interested to see if I could stick with it!
