30 before 30

I never completed any of my birthday lists before so I gave myself 3 years to complete a list of 30 things. It seems simple enough… Another difference is that we will be doing most (maybe all) of the things as a family.

I have been working on this list for 3 years and I have not gotten very far, but knowing that I have this list and I can plan things make me feel like I am doing something.


Things Completed:
