30 Before 30

I can’t believe I turned 29 yesterday. I also can’t believe that I will be 30 in 364 days – that sounds crazy to me! I don’t know about you, but I think 28 sounded way better than 29 {and 26 sounds better than 27,  24 > 25, and so on!} but I must admit, I am a fan of even numbers. I was happy looking back at my list of 28 things in my 28th year – I was proud to say I completed a solid amount of things on that list. I think its good to have goals and great to share them with people who can hold you accountable. I love to write things down and cross them off a list, it’s weird but it makes me happy, so I wanted to create a similar list of things I want to do in the next year before I turn the big 3-0!

I kept a few of the things I wanted to complete from my list last year, added on some of the 2013 resolutions I have been working on since January and rounded out the list with some other fun must-do’s before 30! Here’s my bucket list of 30 things I want to do before I’m 30 – Enjoy!

    the new list is just as inspiring – a good mix of every changes and one-off experiences, and all of which can only make life more positive!

    If you are looking for an acupuncturist in Philly I highly recommend Renew Acupuncture. Brittany has done amazing work for me and my boyfriend. Good luck with your list and Happy Birthday 🙂

    Great mixture of items, especially love #15 and #27!

    Where else do you plan to travel to? #1 and #10 are similar but I’m curious what will be the second stamp in the passport in addition to Chile!

      Nina – The trip to Chilie is mostly planned at this point and I want to go somewhere else out of the country too – maybe a random long weekend trip with the Hubs like we did when we went to Jamaica last year. I’m hoping to travel some more this year! 🙂

    Awesome list! I created my own list of 29 before I’m 29. I’ve slowly been checking things off!
