On Turning Twenty-five + 25 things to do this year

So, this last year has been absolutely life-changing.  I haven’t posted here at all, but I moved to Boston to start a new job and moved in with the most wonderful human being ever [his name is Kevin Barnett].  And it’s been so much fun.


My  mom is coming came out to visit for my birthday and I’m super excited for that it was the best birthday gift ever!


I did alright on the list from last year, but I did so much more that wasn’t even on the list.  Things like, backpack in New Hampshire, drive across the country, or explore downtown Boston.  I still love making the lists (I even bought a journal that is full of lists) but I also totally recognize I won’t ever accomplish all of it.  Fortunately, most of the time other more fun things I never could have dreamed up happen instead!  So, here’s to another year exploring this beautiful planet 🙂

  1. Publish a blog post monthly (since I can’t seem to do weekly… or at all)
  2. Visit New York City
  3. Visit Washington, DC and see more of the Smithsonian museums
  4. Find something I love about Boston (Running in the fall weather – gorgeous leaves, also running in the snow!)
