30 Before 30

Back to homepage

Brian and I were discussing bucket lists a few months ago, and came to two conclusions:
They are slightly morbid and depressing.
Bucket lists give you no real time-frame and that makes people less likely to accomplish their goals.

That is when we figured a bucket list with an actual ending point (aside from death) sounded like a great idea.

We decided a Pre-30 list. Brian is turning 30 in November, so we had to up his to 35 ;-) – I have exactly 1726 days to accomplish my list!

I went on a friend’s blog and found out that we are not the only ones with this great Idea. They decided on a “Pre-Baby Bucket List.”
