Articles should include at least 3 pictures and up to 10. Pictures should be sent as jpeg attachments rather than embedded in a word file. Maximum size per email is 10mb so if you’re sending many large photos you can use multiple emails.
Your submissions do not need to be original posts. You can submit already published works as long as they are your own content. I do ask that all submissions are in Microsoft Word format and all photos are sent as jpeg attachments.
Remember to include your name and a link to your blog at the bottom of the text.
Send submissions to email@example.com.
I’ll start posting submissions on Friday, January 20th, 2012 and post regularly.
Thank you and I look forward to reading your Bucket List Publications!
On this day last year, I danced down the isle, better known as the beach in Jamaica, to the man of my dreams and my best friend. We celebrated our love while being surrounded by our family and friends and the most surreal environment imaginable. From rock climbing, trapeze-swinging, sand-jumping, and over-the-shoulder throwing, we had it all. Our fairy-tale continues to this day.

After posting One year of Extreme Adventures, I started to think about the travel that I’ve done in the last year. I’ve been to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Bahamas, Mexico (Baja California and Riviera Maya) and Jamaica. I’ve also been to several provinces in Canada such as Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and even more states in the United States like Florida, Alaska, Nevada, and California. I’ve compiled a group of my favorite moments from each country, state, and province. Come along with me on an amazing, unforgettable trip through the last year in travel.
There may not be words to fill in the blanks but the expression on my face accompanied by the surreal surrounding create enough words to fill an entire blog.

When you marry your best friend who is equally as crazy and foolish, its amazing what free-spirited pictures can be taken on your wedding day. From rock climbing, trapeze-swinging, sand-jumping, and over-the-shoulder throwing, we had it all. But what else would you expect from a couple that knew each other for a month before moving in together, explored countries together, and sold everything to move across the continent and start a new life together? This is my fairy tale. Continue reading
Some of my favorite photos are jump action shots, but they can be difficult to achieve. Action photography requires you to be quick and know your camera. In most occasions, though, it is the funny, off-time shots that make the day memorable.
Let’s jump in and see some photos inspired by one action: jump!
With over 2/3 of my views under the “Our Jamaica Wedding” category, I’m excited to post more pictures from our dream wedding adventure.

When we planned our wedding at Breezes Trelawny in Jamaica for January 4th, 2011, we didn’t have high expectations for the resort, rather for our family and our ability to have a great time in any situation. My husband and I had traveled around the world and our only hope was to experience somewhere new while marrying each other. What we didn’t expect was that it was a tropical paradise situated in some of the most stunningly beautiful surroundings on earth. After all, it was here where our lifetime together began.
Breezes Trelawny is not the top resort in Jamaica and it lacks in several all-inclusive areas, such as food, available activities, and cleanliness, but the great photo opportunities were in abundance. I can’t imagine anywhere else in the world where we could get photos on the beach, around a flower-filled walkway, near rustic shacks, in a gazebo, around a pool, on a rock climbing wall, and on a trapeze (Okay, I can guarantee you didn’t expect the trapeze, but it worked).
Most people spend thousands of dollars on having the most beautiful wedding setting and spend thousands more on alcohol and food to follow the ceremony. Our simple, classic wedding was preceded by a dancing bride down the isle that just so happened to be a spectacular beach and succeeded with an open bar and unlimited food in an à la carte restaurant with a singing, dancing waiter. Everything was easy and surreal.
