my life list #1

Sometimes I feel as though my childhood was just yesterday, while other days I feel much older than my years. There's no getting away from it: I am getting older, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to become a grown up one of these days. 2012 is the last year of my 20's. This time next year I'll be 30. Sheesh.

With that in mind, I thought I would share with you my life list. It would be a 30 before 30, but there are more than 30 things on it, and a lot of them I probably won't get to do before I'm 30. I've marked the ones I have already completed in

Well, I can help with the cardigan! We really should meet up and knit one day soon :)

Hurrah! Yes, we must! I'm still all up in the air with unpacking stuff, but certainly sometime soon!

Wow - that is quite a list and lots done already!
