The bucket list & lifestyle blog all about facing your fears & conquering your greatest dreams. The platform's mission is to inspire, motivate & empower others.

This website is for anyone who's ever felt a little lost; it's for people who are in an eager search for happiness. It turns out that you DO NOT have to define yourself with one word. You DO NOT need to label yourself based on your career, because that's not who you are, it's what you do. It just so happens that you DO know what you want, so why not write it down? Share it with the world, or hide it in a folder. Either way, it's time to take action & show yourself (& maybe the world) what you're made of.

Bucket List Bound (Formerly 2147Miles) was created in March of 2010 to keep friends & family in-the-loop as I prepared for my solo move across the country to Nashville. (You guessed it, 2,147 miles away from home.) It was created in a moment of loneliness, after a falling out with a few of my friends. And, over the past several years, it seems that one thing has always remained constant: No matter what I'm going through, heartache & loss, boredom & blah, my bucket list has always brought me back to a happy reality - &, most importantly, back to a "me" reality. I find myself time, & time again, through sheets of paper with words written on them all because it's all me - all mine. My recipe for life.

The beautiful Bucket List Bound logo was designed by my great friend, the late Madison Pearce, & reformatted to embody everything that she believed in & all that this website stands for. There is beauty to be found in everything, if you are willing to look hard enough. Nothing is impossible. We love you Maddie!

The Perfectionist Way…

By Amy Riordan | April 20, 2010

As I started reading Message In A Bottle last night, I began to wonder about how big some of my goals are, and it really started to get to me. There are times when I want to scream at the top of my lungs that one day I’ll be famous, that I just know it. But, other…

The Year Of Change…

By Amy Riordan | April 19, 2010

The year 2010 is a year of change. There’s so much to look forward to, so much that I still look back on.When you have a moment, take a look at the life that you have and think about what you’re thankful for. Tell your loved ones how much you love them. Let your friends…

My Oh My… No-Bake Cookies…

By Amy Riordan | April 17, 2010

My day was spent in St. Maries making no-bakes with my grandma. It’s been one of my long-time goals to perfect no-bake cookies. And I’ve done it! I know this seems very silly, as it’s such a small goal, but if you’ve ever tried to make no-bakes, you know what I mean. This time, it…

The One I’ve Been Putting Off…

By Amy Riordan | April 14, 2010

People have been asking why I haven’t written about friendship. Well, lately it seems like a very hard topic for me to really get into, especially online… to however many people visit my site. A few months back, it dawned on me that I was letting myself go, almost completely. And, when I realized this,…

Today I spent my day at home, quite a bit under the weather. There’s nothing that bugs me more than a day in bed, filled with nothingness when you know there’s so much to be done at work. I kept myself busy doing homework and reading an autobiography, but cannot wait to get back to…

Couldn’t Be Happier… Or More Confused

By Amy Riordan | March 30, 2010

Today’s a new day, and it’s looking great. It’s obvious that spring is here early. Today it rained, hailed, and was sunny here & there. =) I was joking around “March showers bring April flowers!” I’m a bit confused today, but I’m also very happy. I’m really beginning to understand myself better each day, so…
