Three months ‘til 31||checkpoint


Remember about nine months ago when I went a little extra about turning 30? I made all of the lists to do all of the things because I was pretty excited about a milestone birthday and a brand new decade. Well. I figured it was about high time for a check in. For myself and for some accountability if I’m being honest. Also because D is just about six months away from her 30th and it’s about time to start being extra about that! Below you can take a look at what I’ve accomplished so far and what I still need to check off—I will note that some things I wanted to do this year and others just throughout my thirties. Believe me—there are a lot more lists where these came from! Let us know if you’re interested in seeing any of the others!
