Bucket List The Rome Way

Buck·et list definition

'...experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.'

 

I am enjoying my friends who are sharing their bucket lists with me.

But,

I'm living my bucket list. 

When I was eight years old, my dad died, and I knew then I wanted to be a nurse. At this early age, I was sure I could have saved him. And even as a little girl, I started my list of goals that others call a bucket list. I am now supportive and happy for my friends who are making their bucket lists come true. 

 

 Bucket list=goals=accomplishments the Rome Way.

-I did become an RN and the youngest head nurse at Sinai Hospital. 

-I met and married the love of my life, and we counted each of those quality days all 16,802. 

-We're the first couple to do Natural Childbirth at my hospital

-I am enjoying my beautiful, talented, accomplished daughter every day.

- I became a ceramic artist and still see my creations in homes that I list today. 

-My art was in the D&D building in DC.

-Enjoy living in the first home that is still perfect for me. 

-Traveled everywhere we wanted to go, including a magical 2-week honeymoon, a cross country trip in our plane for two weeks, Bay of Fundy, a trip to Hawaii, a cruise of Alaska, a walk on an iceberg, a QE2 maiden voyage, a cruise through the Panama Canal, and frequent spontaneous weekend trips. We traveled to many USA states, enjoying friends, family, spas, resorts, and so many others. 

-Became a Realtor®

-Won The Get By Giving Award 

-Started blogging in 2006 and still going strong...over 4500.

-Started an Auction Company (short-lived but learned so much)

-Wrote a book

- Broker/Owner of HomeRome Realty

-Host live Sunday Radio, 'All About Real Estate. I have not missed a show in over seven years. 

-Listed and sold many unique and beautiful homes while making friends of colleagues, buyers, and sellers 

-Rising to the challenges when told that I can't do something. 

- Finding perfect homes for special buyers

-Selling all kinds of homes successfully 

 

Living my bucket list, and my goals continue :

-To frequently have someone say: "you've made my day."

- To make the dreams of buying and selling homes possible. 

-To hear the words you've found our perfect home or

you successfully sold our home. 

-To live productively to 100!

 

What's on your bucket list?
