30 x 30

I love lists.
I love goals.
I love dreams.

So in honor of all of those loves and not being 30 yet, I thought I'd do a "30 by 30" list like every other woman blogger out there.  I wanted to keep it specific so I could easily see what I've accomplished.  Giving myself 3 years to complete all of this sounds like quite an adventure, but I plan on conquering!
