30 Before 30, LifeStyle

30 Before 30

January 10, 2014.  376 Days.  

That’s right.  I’m turning 30 in 376 days.  No, I didn’t forget that I have a birthday coming up (my 29th) in 12 days but I’m more excited for my 30th.  Though many of my own friends are freaking out about getting older, I’m actually pretty excited.  For me, birthdays don’t signify getting old but another year that you get to live life, set goals and experience an adventure!  So, in honor of my 30th birthday I created a “30 Before 30” list.  

You may have heard of the 30 Before 30 concept before…if not, just google it and you’ll find TONS of blogs  about it.  The basic gist of it though is that it’s 30 things/goals/experiences/adventures/etc. that you want to experience in the year before you turn 30.  Some people start sooner than their 29th birthday to give them more time, especially if their items include more exotic travel, but I will be starting on my 29th birthday.  On Thursday, January 10th 2013, the adventure begins.
