25 before 25

Monday, November 20, 2017
I cannot believe that this week – Thursday, if you were wondering – is my 24th birthday! Everyone tells me that birthdays get more and more boring after you turn 21, and maybe that's true, but I always love celebrating my birthday and all of the things that come with it – some people call January 1 a new start, but I love to start fresh with a new list of goals and resolutions on my birthday!

This year, I wanted to make two lists – this is the first of two! My birthday is on Thursday, and on that day, I will start working towards my 25 before 25 list. And on January 1, I will start my 101 in 1001 list! (And hopefully the two won't overlap too much, but maybe they will.)


1. Read 50 books.
2. Visit 5 new cities.
3. Go to Europe.
4. Try 25 new restaurants.
5. Start attending a fitness class.
6. Try 25 new recipes.

9. Volunteer my (and Theo's, maybe!) time.
10. Become a morning person.
