ABOUT  |  bucket list bound

Bucket List Bound (formerly 2147Miles) was created in March of 2010, as I prepared to move across the country to beautiful Nashville, Tennessee. Designed (& titled) to share life far away from my family, the website has transformed into a personal development blog focused on inspiring others to follow their dreams, however far away that dream may seem. Not regularly focused on specific travel endeavors, the blog is meant to drive people toward all of their goals, & works to focus on ways to accomplish those goals with a budget in mind.

Regardless of religion, race, or sexual orientation, this website was created to motivate anyone & everyone who's still looking to not find, but create themselves.

The beautiful logo, designed by the late, amazing Ms Maddie Pearce comes from a collection of drawings that she created for her own line of greeting cards, Lenox & Lucy. Created to benefit the Lupus Foundation, as she struggled with this disease, they carry a meaningful message that is near & dear to my heart. It's with this digital creation of her hand-drawn design that I want to embody not only the wise creature that can take flight at a moments notice, but ultimately to embody the creative & inspirational person that Maddie was.

I can only begin to wish that I could make such a remarkable difference in the lives of those around me... & she did it all within 22 years.



ABOUT  |  bucket list

In November of 2007, I sat down to accidentally create a bucket list. While my classmates were all going off to college, I was in my own limbo, staring aimlessly at my big dreams ahead, feeling very low & certain that they were just too far away to possibly reach.

It wasn't until years later that I would realize just how important this list was - along with the over three hundred items that I would slowly work toward. Not only did it allow for me to focus on the things most important to me in life, but it brought a confidence in myself that I didn't know even existed. When you are writing down the items that you wish to accomplish in life, you're writing down your own definition of success. Therefore, if you are accomplishing the items on your list, you are successful. Your life carries more meaning.


ABOUT  |  amy croson

I'm Amy; the 20-something optimist & bucket list enthusiast who decided to share with you just how much creating a bucket list can change you're entire world. I'm the one who ran away to Nashville in search of a singing career & instead found an unbelievable passion for blogging & social media.

Currently, I live in North Idaho (where I was raised) with my amazing Fiancé Tim & our lab/pit Penny. By day, I sell light fixtures & design websites; by night I write my heart out. My passions, aside from writing, include social media, website design, Zipfizz, the Seattle Seahawks & office organization. Looking for my personal bucket list? You can find it HERE.

A Note: The creation (& ongoing writing) of Bucket List Bound is due to, in large part, my personal life experiences (past & current), which can be found linking through my personal bucket list & in the Stories category. These experiences are written for those looking to find inspiration in a negative situation, or searching for a way to fight through a difficult time. My writing is crafted with my readers in mind, but I am DEFINITELY not an expert at life.
