This is the TO-SEE list. It holds my vision driven dreams.

What is the difference between a bucket list and my "TO SEE" list? This list is specific to things I want to see. It may morph into a bucket list. It may expand as I lose vision and figure out new ways to experience the world around me. It is not complete. It is my vision.​


Team Sweet Emily is working hard to make this list happen (and I am just SO grateful). Time is essential because of the progression of the tumor. Some of these I know are far fetched and will most likely not happen. But, it's a working list and as I talk and think more I'm adding to it.
