60 Before 30


It’s my birthday month! Go, Cortney! It’s your birthday!

Well, it was on the 9th but you get the picture.

I am officially 29 years old and I’m so glad I made it. In the spirit of starting anew, I put together a list of 60 things I’d like to do before I turn 30 in 2020. I got this idea from Emily at Em for Marvelous. You can read her list here. She didn’t get to complete all of her items but the point is – she aimed for something that she wanted to do. Some of the things on this list are super small things, while others are pretty impactful and meaningful. My hope is to get to all of them but if I don’t, I won’t stop just because my 30th birthday arrives. 

Start: July 10, 2019
End: July 8, 2020
