Hello Belle Bucket friends!
I thought it would be fun to introduce myself and share a little bit about Belle Bucket and our mission!

First off I’m Amy! I’m a military wife, mother of 5 (one passed away at age 2, but he will always be apart of our family!), I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I love chocolate and Netflix, a part time photographer, and I’m an entrepreneur!

Belle Bucket was created by my sisters and I! Natalie, my 2nd oldest sister, has a wall in her kitchen that she turned into a huge chalk board. She always has it decorated beautifully for holidays, birthdays, seasons, and other special occasions. Every time I see her beautiful chalk board it gets me so excited for the seasons or fun occasions! Unfortunately, I don’t have a whole wall to dedicate to a chalk board and my artistic abilities are comparable to my 6-year-old daughter’s! My sister’s and I thought it would be fun to have a custom bucket list print that you could print huge and display beautifully on your wall. I searched the internet for what I was looking for. I checked Pinterest, Instagram, facebook, google, etc. There was nothing. So we decided to bring Belle Bucket to life. Now everyone can have a beautiful bucket list to display on their wall and get excited for the season or upcoming events! Our Bucket lists are custom too so don’t forget to add Jake’s 11th birthday and the Smith’s Christmas party to your list!

Not only is Belle Bucket beautiful and fun, but it has real meaning too. When my son passed away, the things that mattered to me changed drastically. There was a time when my family wasn’t a priority. I got so caught up in day to day life that the things I looked forward to were getting out of my house with friends and watching tv after bedtime. Don’t get me wrong, those things are still priorities now (we all need breaks!), but they don’t come first anymore. My goal in life is to treasure this moment in life with my kids. I want to make every memory count while they live at home. I want to spend my time going to adventures, playing games as a family, and staying present with them. Do I struggle at this? Yes! Am I a perfect mom? Absolutely not!! But instead of feeling like an absolute failure every night, I love to go look at our Belle Bucket list and see all the memories we’ve made together.

Yes, we don’t always check off every single box, but in the end it doesn’t matter how many boxes you left unchecked, it just matters that you checked off any. Those are memories you now have to keep. You can visually see those memories forever more. Who really remember the day to day stuff? I know I don’t. I remember bits and pieces, but the things I remember are the spontaneous road trips my mom took us on, the pride I felt when I finished our family hike and got hot chocolate as a reward, and singing carols around the Christmas tree together as a family. Those moments matter. Family matters. The best part about Belle Bucket lists are checking these special memories off as a family. And even if they don’t remember each item, they will remember their amazing childhood.

So What’s Belle Bucket’s mission? We want to motivate you! We want to add joy in your home. We want to help you make memories! We want to spark adventure!
Make checking off your Belle Bucket list apart of your family’s traditions!
