34 While 34

In 2007 on the day I turned 27 I created a list of 27 things I wanted to do before I turned 28. That little list has turned into an annual tradition! Kind of a New Year’s Resolutions, but easier. Small, obtainable goals! Over the past few years I have done a decent job of having new adventures, trying new things and marking things off my To Do list every year. I don’t take the list too seriously because the goal is to have fun and enjoy life, but I do enjoy writing DONE! Be sure to check back in every now and then to see how I’m doing on marking these items off one by one!

Check out previous years below:

For the items that I accomplish I will put $5 towards an unnecessary workout clothing purchase. Think Lululemon or new colorful sneakers. For those that I do not accomplish I will add $5 towards a donation to the MSPCA Boston Animal Care and Adoption Center. <—Don’t worry. I donate on a regular basis, but this would be in addition to my yearly donation
