Thirty Before Thirty

So, I decided after turning 29 last October that I would make a "30 before 30" list of all of things I want to do before turning the big 3-0. I've been meaning to get this on my blog for awhile now, but better late than never! I hope by putting this out in the blogosphere, I'll be more motivated to complete it. Come on friends, hold me to these! If you want to join in on some of these, let me know! I've only got 4 and half months to get through the list!

I'm a lot less anxious about this milestone birthday than I thought I'd be when I was in my early twenties. I'm excited to enter a new decade of my life and am grateful for all I've been able to do thus far. Besides, thirties are the new twenties, right?!? My twenties had a lot of ups and downs, but it was overall a pretty awesome 10 years. I look forward to seeing what my thirties have in store, bring it on!
