20 Things I did in my 20’s

I turned 30 yesterday.  I was kinda sorta dreading it, but not really. If that makes any sense.  I knew nothing was going to change, but I was mourning the loss of “being young”.  I kept feeling like I hadn’t accomplished anything big.

Then I was blessed to read a friend’s blog post from when she turned 30.  She took the opportunity to come up with 20 things she did that were great in order to celebrate her 20’s.  And I thought that would be a perfect way to handle this feeling that I’m dealing with.

So here I go: 20 things I did in my 20’s!

1. I got married to my best friend one month after I turned 20:MattBritta Wedding
