#5 Own Something From Tiffany & Co.

I really thought this one was going to be a long shot…. but there are some pretty cool people in my life… My sister threw me a pretty amazing 30th birthday bash a few weeks ago.  (yes I know my actual birthday is not until September…) following the rose gold decorations, a shrine of photos…

#14 Journal More

Y’all know my love for bullet journaling runs deep…so very, very deep. And I’m totally knocking these #thirtybeforethirty challenges out of the park! Number 14 was to journal more.  And by that I mean, actually take the time to sit down and write about my day, things to remember, prayers I have, whatever comes to…

#10 Take a Photography Class – Part 1

Well one of my #thirtybeforethirty challenges was to take a photography class. While my original intention (I think) was to find one to take “IN PERSON” but that is a whole lot harder (and expensive) than I can handle right now.  So my adapted challenge was to find an online class that *hopefully* will have…

#29: Learn to Like Fruit

California: Day 2

Full of windy roads and beautiful scenery this place is breathtakingly gorgeous… and we could not have asked for a more perfect day! We started off visiting the Foothills visitor center, where we got some advice…

#25: See The Pacific Ocean

And the list checking off continues! I have now seen (and touched) the Pacific! And boy was the water cold! (Well not the worst). I must say, she’s not all that different from the Atlantic (at least by looks and feels). But the sun is different. She’s much hotter in California! Here’s to completing my…

California: Day 1

All day today has been a little surreal. I still can’t believe I’m here! Today started with waking up in the Hampton Inn and the most comfortable bed… EVER. I slept so well last night. Likely due to the 9+ hours of travel time and the fact that my 10:30 flight arrival into LAX was…

#1: Travel to Another Timezone

As I write this, I sit in the airport – in Chicago. Therefore – I have officially traveled to another timezone. Granted, I’m in the airport; and can’t even see the Chicago skyline – but I can check off number one on my #thirtybeforethirty list! Snapped this shot walking into the Albany Airport back home……
