I am a relentless goal setter. I love lists. I love planning. I love dreaming and arbitrary dates & deadlines. Every New Years Eve I sit down with a drink and create a list of goals for the coming year, a vision. Then six months later on my birthday I sit down, review those goals, update or change any that have shifted and start anew. So with my 30th birthday only a few days away, I thought I would share my top 30 goals before I turn 30.

A few items not quite crossed off the list, but I have a new decade, a new list to make and I think I can cross them off then. My 20’s were hard, messy, strange and beautiful. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings!
