This is an awesome list! I am currently working on writing out my bucket list. It is a really fun process, but hard to plan out.

And I think that you should count you being so encouraging to me as one of your non-selfish things you did!

And best of luck saving for your wedding. It's tough, but the payout will be SO worth it!
