30 Before Thirty

When I was in high school, I remember my friends and I wishing to be 20, thinking the world would be our oyster!  And 30?  Oh my, was that old!

Old??  Oofta, now I am just 8 short months away from it!  My girlfriends and I celebrated our first 29th birthdays this past summer and were debating if we’ll just continue with 29th birthdays, or actually turn 30 next year.  I think I will go ahead and celebrate 30, but we’ll see as it gets closer.

I’m not sure I am where I pictured my life as an almost 30-year old.  There were a few detours along the way.  I took a couple lefts when they should have been rights.  I’ve been to college a couple of times for two separate degrees, been married and divorced, found the man who was made for me, been a caregiver, become an aunt, gotten some ink, opened my wonderful Etsy shop, been momma to a few fur-babies, and so many other wonderful things.

So in these last few months of my first 29th year, I have decided to make a few goals of things to do before I’m the big 3-0.
