My 28th Year & A Birthday Bucket List

Today is my 29th Birthday! Happy Birthday to me!

This time last year, I put together a little list – 28 things in my 28th year  – I must admit that after creating the list, I may or may not have forgotten about it for a bit. Oops. But every now and then, throughout the year I would come back to it, make some notes, write a few things down about what I had done & what was still on my little list. Unfortunately I didn’t 100% knock off everything I wanted to do, but I did so much in the past 12 months & really had an amazing year.

Here is a look back at my little list – what I did, what I didn’t do – I’m thinking of re-working it a bit and making a big bucket list of thing I want to do before the big 3-0!

Happy Birthday

    I LOVE this!! I need to make a list of things I KNOW will make me happy and hold myself accountable for completing it.

    Happy birthday! I’d say you got quite a bit completed on the list (and it was quite the list..I must say!)

    My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, so I should probably work on my 28 before 28 list, huh? Oops!

    This was a really neat list. My 28th is on the 7th and I think I’m going to make my own list. Thanks for the inspiration!
