30 Things

Today is my birthday! I am officially IN my 30s, and I must say it feels good. 20s were fun, but also sort of strange and scary and oh-my-gosh-i-have-no-clue-what-to-do-or-how-to-do-it. Being 30 felt noticeably different, in a really great way, and I think 31 is going to be even better.

So, being a natural born list maker, here are 30 things I did this year, as a 30 year old!

1. Moved to Nashville

2. Moved into the artists lofts in Nashville

3. Got jobs at 2 pretty cool restaurants

4. Sewed like 20 quilts

5. Went to Dolly Wood

It has really been a great year full of great people and great places, and, as always, lots of unexpected surprises. I’ve really seen the power of saying yes to new experiences, and I am excited to see what 31 will bring!
