30 Before 30

I have a birthday coming up in a few days. Six days to be exact. I'm turning 28, and I'm not too happy about it.

To ease the pain of getting older and approaching *gulp* 30, I've created a 30 before 30 list to make sure I get the most out these last 2 years in my 20s.

It's funny, because when you read these you'll think these were written by woman in her 50s. I guess I'm an old soul. Or a boring person? Yeah, I'm going with old soul.

1. Travel to Europe
2. Take a cooking or baking class
3. Go back to Napa
4. Fill my house with items I love
5. Do a spending freeze for a month
6. Organize my closets

10. Clean off my desk and bookcase
11. Print and organize my photographs
12. Relearn calligraphy
13. Be legit about what kind of foods I put in my body
14. Attend a beyond fabulous event
15. Go on a 'blate'
16. Take a photography class

18. Take a risk
19. Do therapy dog certification with Five
20. Commit to barre for one year
21. Organize our wine collection
22. Send a card to a friend just because
23. Do something I don't feel like doing just because it's good for me
24. Do a blog redesign
25. Go on a spur of the moment trip
26. Make my own laundry detergent
27. Send flowers to someone anonymously
28.Write a letter to myself to open when I'm 40.
29. Surprise my husband with something fabulous
30. Skinny dip (can you believe that I have never done this?)



  1. That's a great list! And don't worry about 28, I am 32... and it only gets better :)

    Pearls & Paws

  2. I'm almost 28, as well. I've never been one to care about getting older, but for some reason, 28 seems a little daunting! I should probably do this list sometime in the next 1 month and 6 days too :)

  3. ohhh I might have to steal some of these! i like the writing the letter to open when you're forty! :)

  4. I just turned 28 in November, ugh. What an age, can't even say mid twenties any more. But I love your list!! Good luck :)

  5. Love this list! I'm turning 25 in april and I REALLY need to get moving if I'm going to try to finish it all!

  6. So glad I found your blog, you have a new follower:)
    Welcome to the 28 club, its not too bad ;)
