    I shared this on facebook a couple years ago. I only have a year left so I thought I would share it here!!!

    Writing things down has been a great motivator to do some of them!

    A friend of mine did this and I thought it was an awesome idea! I am hoping it will be a big motivator to do these things.

    3. Ride in a hot air balloon -hopefully going to do this on my 30th birthday next year!
