30 by 31

After much pondering, listing, erasing, and revising, the much awaited list has arrived!  I had such a great time with my 30 by 30 last year, I decided to carry on the tradition (and wrap up the few things I didn’t get to) with a 30 by 31.  For a second I thought about upping the list every year to match my age, but what happens when I get to 90?  I think making and completing 30 goals by each birthday is plenty, so that’s what I’m sticking with.  And here’s what we have in store for this year — the first year of my thirties.  xoxo
