33 Things To Do Before I Turn 34

Tomorrow I am officially 33 years old, or what I’ve newly coined twenty-thirteen. We can all still be in our twenties. Who says otherwise, right? And since I’m the Queen of Lists, I deemed it appropriate that I create a to-do list that will inspire and excite my twenty-thirteenth year of being alive. If there is one thing a list can do, it can certainly make you feel accomplished and fulfilled, assuming you are working hard at everything on it. I dug deep…and thoughtfully I compiled this list. It will serve as my motivation, guide, and reminder of how rich life really is and how blessed I am. As the year goes on, I hope to cross items off the list and post pictures of what I achieved. In the meantime, I will enjoy my last day as a twenty-twelve year old woman. Happy Birthday to me.  :)
