30 before 30

So.. in 18 short days, my 1,001 days are up. A few months ago I started working on my new 101/1,001 list and I was really having a difficult time coming up with 101 plausible things that I wanted to accomplish. And I kept searching for people’s bucket lists online, and 101/1,001 lists, and 30 before 30 lists, and 40 before 40 lists, and so on. I discussed with Mallory, and we decided together that a 30 before 30 list was much more accessible this time around.. even though I turn 30 almost 9 months after she does. Here is my current 30 before 30 list… but it is obviously subject to change in the next 18 days. Any ideas? You’ll see some repeats!!
