My 30 Adventures!!

July 1, 2016

Last year on my 30th birthday, I started a year of 30 adventures.  It was my way of proving to myself that 30 could be cool after all, because I was really dreading it. Some of my adventures I planned well in advance and others came along throughout the year. I chose each one intentionally. Some I did just to prove to myself that I could do something different and hard. Others were things on my “bucket list” that I finally decided to make happen. Looking back, it’s fun to see what adventures this last year has brought. Here’s to staying “young” at 31!! Ha!
