Thirty for thirty



Do you want to hear a secret?

Come closer.

A little more.

That's good.  Now listen carefully.

I am turning thirty this year.

Yup, the big 3-0.

It is a little weird.

I don't have the aversion to getting older that a lot of people have, but I do want to accomplish some things.  I mean, I will be thirty.  I think that is officially an adult.  I will no longer be in my twenties.

And so, this is the list of things I want to accomplish before I turn thirty.

  1. Host a real tea party.

  11. Go fishing
  12. Be more mindful of others
  13. Speak softly with loving words
  14. Establish a house of order
  15. Make a blanket
  16. Relax
  17. Start a book club with Keith
  18. Appreciate and show more love to my husband
  19. Decide what I want to do when I go back to school
  20. Develop a new skill
  21. Attend a play
  22. Appreciate and love my body
  23. Lay on the grass and make cloud shapes with the kids
