Reader’s Choice

  • I’m one task short of 30, so I thought I’d add a reader’s choice item. Leave a comment here with something you’d like to see me do. Whether it’s a recipe to try or an activity or festival to go to, just let me know in the comments below. Hubby and I will sit down and choose one from the comments within the first month of my 30s and I’ll include it in my one month update in July.

    I so love lists… to the point where it’s an addiction. Something about the satisfaction of completing things on it and crossing it out. 🙂 Great list and happy half birthday!! 🙂
