30, Flirty, & Thriving – 30 Things Before I Turn 31

This Sunday is my 30th birthday and I am beyond thrilled to be entering this new decade of my life!

I wholeheartedly believe 30 is the new 20. I’m young, but no longer a kid. I’m more at home in my skin, but skill excited to dig in and learn more about myself. I have established relationships and I am a mother, but I’m not firmly planted and I feel free to explore, grow, and discover. What a time to be alive!

Heading into my 30’s, I’ve been thinking about how I can make the next 10 years the best of my life (so far). Being a natural list-maker, I wrote out 30 things I want to accomplish over the next year. Some of these are big goals, like home projects or month-long challenges, but many are fun little goals I can accomplish in a day and are purely for my own happiness. I plan on keeping this list posted in my craft room as a daily reminder, but I thought I’d share it here, too!

30 Things To Do Before 31:
