i feel like i do a fabulous job of living my life BIG, but its time to make a list and start crossing things off. im about to be 30. not that its the end of the world, but i want to make sure i am at a happy place when i turn 30. i want to be grateful for my 20's and think back when im old... man. i had a lived it up in my twenties.
so, may i present,
30 things I want to do before i turn 30.
some will certainly happen.
some may never happen.
but i will try my best to make all 30 things come to fruition in the next couple years (ek!) of life.
join me if you want! make your own 30 by 30, or 40 by 40 or just a good old bucket list!
i think this will be fun. i hope to post a blog about each thing as i mark it off my list.
here goes nothin'!
1. hike the georgia, north carolina and tennessee section of the appalachian trail
3. continue my education... in some way
5. read the entire Bible, cover to cover ((dont judge me that this isn't already crossed off))
7. read 30 books, including one by jane austen, and
8. be more green aka sustainable. work hard on our garden. collect rain water. have a great compost pile. have chickens. eat happy meat--- but less meat as a whole. eat local.
