26 Things to do Before Turning 27

This has been one awesome year for me. Not only did I have a super cute baby girl, I started blogging again, made new friends, stretched myself to try to make old friends feel special, recommitted myself to being a good wife, planned several fun get-togethers, and way, way more. I am feeling more in love with life than I can ever remember being. 25 was an extremely wonderful age for me.

So, as I turn 26 today, I wanted to challenge myself to push my limits throughout the year. There's a meme online to make a goals list for one's age. I have never done it before, but I have never felt capable of doing scary things and dreaming big dreams before this year. This list encompasses things I think about daily, from the mundane to the thrilling.

And you know what? All of these things are going to be done well before I turn 27, because I know that this is going to be a great year for me. Thanks for being around for it, all of you.
