30 Before 30

In February of 2015, I realized I had 15 months to go until my 30th birthday. I decided that I wanted to send my 20s out with a bang, Or 30.

So I came up with the following, my very own 30 Before 30 list. In order to decide what made the cut I stayed away from things that seemed more like resolutions and went for the tangible, the quantifiable. The ones that I could capture in a blog post. And this page is where I will do just that.

As these items get completed, I'll link them to the story, pictures and videos behind it. And if you're interested in being a part of any of these adventures, let me know!
