Do Not Miss Lists

Danielle’s DNM List (aka Bucket List)

Do Not Miss Lists can serve any number of purposes – what not to miss when traveling to a city or country, what not to miss when packing, what not to miss when planning – or in this case, what not to miss before I die. As I complete the items, they will become italicized.  I’ve had this list for some time, so I have already gotten around to a good number on the list 🙂
