Before I turned 28 last December, I made a list of 28 things that I wanted to accomplish before my next birthday.

I’ve been checking in weekly to see how I’ve been doing on my Bucket List, and to keep the goals in the forefront of my mind.

Today, I want to do an accountability check.

Here is the list of my 28 Things that I want to do before I turn 29:
