My 30 Before 30 Mission || Raleigh Photographer

Hello August! There’s something about the start of a new month that always turns my thoughts to goal-setting.

Waking up this morning, my thoughts turned to the list of things I set out to do before I turn 30. I started a blog with my 30 before 30 list back when I turned 25 years old. Looking at this list, I haven’t made much progress. Oops! Since then, priorities have shifted. I’ve taken a few things off of the list and replaced them with others, but this is my final draft.

I’ve got a little less than two years to go, so I had better get started!

So there’s my list! Now I want to hear from you! What kind of goals do you want to reach before you turn 30? 40? 😉

  • Lillllllllian - My! You’re back!! It’s good to read from you again 😉 I recently started thinking about turning 30, I think because at IVLI I had a lot of time to just think and it really hit me that 30 is less than a decade away now. Time to make a list of my own 🙂 It’s kinda cool that some of the items you have I also would like to accomplish (I won’t say which until I have my official list done.) I do have 2 questions: Did you do the lettering in the photo that says “30 before 30”? Secondly, can I teach you how to rollerblade? I think that would be fun.Thanks for posting!ReplyCancel

  • Mylina - Hey thanks for reading! My friend Hannah did the lettering in the photo. I think it would be fun to go rollerblading together too, but I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to try it with baby girl on the way. 😉ReplyCancel

    • Lillian Holt - Well Hannah did a lovely job and I think it would be cool for you to learn lettering. Also, good point about the rollerblading 😉ReplyCancel
