Yesterday was my 27th birthday.
It was wonderful, full of all the things I love- time with my hubster, EA, and my mom, shopping, Mexican food, cupcakes, and a few quiet minutes of alone time to organize (and blog browse at least a little :) ). It was excellent.
During my brief blog browsing time, I explored Kristen's blog at Life at the Ellwoods. As I was exploring, I found her header that stated her 30 goals before she turned 30. Her list was quite interesting to read because a lot of them lined up with things I would put on my list. Her post made me consider the things I would put on my list for the next 3 years. I like the thought of having a tangible place to document what I would like to see happen, how and when it happens, and how God exceeds anything I could possibly plan or hope for in my life.
With that said, in no particular order, here is my 30 before 30!
