Here’s the thing about creating Emmett’s Bucket List: I struggled to complete it because I kept feeling like it was too final, like once we checked off all the items, it was like telling the universe we were ready to let him go. Which we’re not. Nor will we ever be.
I needed to change my mindset! That’s why this post has taken WEEKS to come together. What I decided to do was a Top 10 list! This leaves room for coming up with more as we check things off his list. So, here it is:
Emmett’s Bucket List: Top 10
1. Eat a steak dinner.
2. Be a Pinups for Pitbulls male model.
3. Get his very own Rupert (his favorite stuffie).
4. Go for a night out at a restaurant…
4.5 … followed by a froyo.
5. Swim at the beach.
6. Enjoy a picnic in the park (without his brothers).
7. Wear a bowtie to a party in his honor.
8. Host a fundraiser for a charity TDB.
9. Capture his spirit in a portrait.
10. Embark on an Epic Road Trip!
If you’ve been following along, you know that the road trip is the current focus – we leave this weekend! I’ll have all the dates, stops, and events for you tomorrow – so stay tuned! We really want to see you along the way!
