Exactly two years ago I had created this 30 before 30 bucket list.  I enjoy reposting this every year because it is a good reminder of what I wanted to do and what I have accomplished each year.  28 went by so fast, I barely had time to keep my house clean let alone check off some new hobbies or things to accomplish.  So here it goes… crossing a few more things off my list!
