Do You Remember?

Do you remember that young adult you once were? The one that was filled with dreams, the one who thought the world could become a better place, and that you could help change it.

Bucket list, the last scramble to get in all the things that you put off your whole life. The things that were actually important to you. Don't get me wrong there are things we should experience before our time is up but why put it on a bucket list. Why are we putting it off until later? What if there is no later? Recently I was contacted by a very expressive woman, and I say this is the most loving way! She had contacted me for a custom order on a set of mugs and she had a way with...
