Today, I turn 29.

(ugh, the anxiety is already starting to build.

There’s only 365 days till I am *whisper voice* thirty!)

There’s not much time left of my 20’s!  How did it go so fast?  I feel like I blinked and I went from 25 to 29.  Must be a sign that I’m getting older.

In order to make the MOST of my last year, I’ve decided to make a bucket list in random order.  Introducing my 30 things to do before I’m 30.  In short:

  30. Read 30 books!
  • School of Fear, by Gitty Daneshvari   SO CUTE!  My nephew read it (6th grade) and loved it.   A fun tween fiction.
  • Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle – a MUST read for everyone.  Witty and heartfelt, you’ll love this book!
  • The Paris Wife by Paula McLain – heart strings will be pulled when you read about the crazy life of the Hemmingways in 1920’s Paris
  • The Three Martini Play Date – had me giggling and taking notes about what to expect when we have kids.  GREAT read for a new dad
  • Ghostopolis – comic book style, read this with a student in tutoring.  Good story line!!
  • Maine – this one took a while to get through, lots of family drama and history.  Easy to relate to, though
  • Missing Dad – LOVE this book!   Everyone should read it and pass it along to friends        


So, today I will celebrate.

Tomorrow, I will start the 30X30.
