In my next 30 years...

In exactly six months...I'll be 30.

OMG. Scary.

I actually thought I would be a lot more freaked out than I am.  I know that age ain't nothin' but a numba but still, it's a milestone.  I think that for anyone, leaving their twenties behind is bittersweet.  I'm ready to leave it all behind.  As a very wise woman (Carrie Bradshaw) once said...“Enjoy yourself. That’s what your 20s are for. Your 30s are to learn the lessons. Your 40s are to pay for the drinks.”

I definitley enjoyed myself.  I traveled (crossed swimming in the Great Barrier Reef off my bucket list...and visiting Sleepy Hollow NY).  I bungee jumped!  I drank and danced and laughed.  I made lifelong friends.  I graduated from college.  Bought a puppy.  I will have been in 4 weddings.  And most importantly I met AFG...I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems like veryone has a 30 things to do before they are 30 list.  Well, I don't because 6 months doesn't give me enough time to do what I want to do...I dream big ok?

But here it goes...If I had millions and could make it happen, this is what I would do...
