Early. 30.

I have 29 days left of being 29 today.

My husband and friends surprised me last weekend. Like really surprised me.

I was suspicious. {I am always suspicious.} I was doing some feeling out. There were some clues. But when it came down to it I was really, genuinely, 100% surprised.

They did good.

I felt loved.

And grateful.

Friends put together a book that guests signed with what they were doing in "1982" {I am the young friend with the old soul} and favorite memories and all of that. And I loved it but I really loved on the instructions where it was written that while I've accomplished a lot of things, none are as important as the relationships I have.


So even though my 30th's been celebrated and my kids think we're just celebrating for 6 weeks straight, tell me what are some must-do's in the next 29 days? I'd like to do something every day counting down. Maybe it's some kind gestures, maybe it's some random laughs. Just tell me how I can make the most of the simple little things before I turn 30.


Happy weekend, friends.

Other places I've been writing this week:

I wish I had suggestions to offer, but I spent the last few months of my 20s griping that I was almost 30 and "What have I done with my life?!" So I applaud your positive outlook and forward-thinking-ness, if that's even a word. And, who knows, maybe I'll take some of your suggestions and put them into play in the 39 days before I turn 40 at the end of the year! :)

Oh man, you are being very positive-I am freaking out and I have 5 months till I turn the big 3-0, plus I have my list to get cracking on! Hmmm little should buy yourself something you always wanted but always put off to do something else (it doesn't have to be big or expensive) You could have a pillow fight with your kids, go and paint some pottery one day at color me mine, take a walk around your neighborhood one night with your hubby...

I don't have any suggestions as I'm about 5 months away from turning 30. Hope that you find something fun to do the last 29 days that you are in your twenties.

Man, you are young (wink).

It really wasn't dramatic turning 30, in fact... I'm having more fun in my 30's because I'm more assertive, more specific, more focused...

What a sweet gesture of your husband and friends!

As you know, I made a list of 29 things to do in my 29th year. Thankfully, I gave myself a lot of grace going into it, as I knew I wouldn't accomplish them all. It was fun checking some things off the list and sometimes painful or surprising to find things on the list I realized I could do without. As a fellow list lover (and with a full year of experience in my thirties - ha!), I'd say to put things on that list that will make you smile, ponder, laugh, reflect, relax, savor, and challenge yourself. Those things will look different for every person, but ultimately, they are what make you YOU. And you, my friend, are wonderful. Love you, mean it!
