-Have an Ohanami. Difficulty Rating 2 out of 10:
In Japan, they have a springtime tradition know as 'ohanami' or 'flower viewing party'. When the world starts to bloom, e
I love picnics and spring. I think this is a wonderful tradition from a culture I already love, so it should be no surprise that I want to make this one of my own families' traditions. I've already made plans to have my first ohanami next week and I hope to continue the tradition every spring. For the Japanese, the Sakura blossoms are a metaphor for live: beautiful and fleeting and a reminder to make the most with the short time we all have here.
-Visit Harry Potter World. Difficulty Rating 6 out of 10:
I remember the first time I read Harry Potter. I was at the beach during a family vacation and I borrowed my sister's copy to see what all the fuss was about. I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything other than read day and night until I had finished that book. I love the magical joy of the Harry Potter series. But perhaps even more than the story, I love how excited people got about reading. Anytime people get dressed up for a midnight release party celebrating a book, my heart fills with joy.

When I heard that Universal Orlando was opening a theme park zone dedicated to Harry Potter, I knew that I would have to make a journey there to pay homage to a series that revealed the joys of reading to so many people and to live in Harry's magical world one more time.
-Kiss my wife in a hot air balloon. Difficulty Rating 4 out of 10:
Who doesn't want to make out in a hot air ballon? Drifting slowly over beautiful landscapes, held aloft by heat and passion. If I could only travel by bike and hot air ballon for the rest of my life, I think I'd be pretty happy. Hot air ballons are pure romance and I love seeking romance and finding it with my wife.
