30 by 30
In just 21 short months this momma will be turning 30. I have never been one to dread age, actually I get pretty excited about getting older. I am sure it's only because I still look 12 and just maybe a new # will bring on a little bit more mature look about myself. So far, not so good. aw well.
Anyway, I am excited about turning 30. But really I am excited about what I hope to accomplish personally in my life before then.
I have given myself a 'to do' list of sorts to get done before October 1, 2013.
*Just a little preface to this list.
I essentially have done none of these things (minus going out of the country..and had a baby). And these were made to be intentional. Rather than just saying "run", I want to specifically run a 1/2 marathon.
Also,these items are in no particular order or importance or priority.
So, here goes.
1.Run 1/2 marathon
2.Spend an entire day by myself...and not get bored:)
4.Spend a whole day with my little sister..doing just what she wants.
