28 things to do before I turn 29

It's B-day!  That phrase has two meanings today.  First, it's Batman aka The Dark Knight Rises day/night.  And, possibly more important to at least me, it's the 28th anniversary of my introduction to this very world.  Weeee! :)

I can't believe I'm 28.  What a year it's been!  New jobs, new trips, new recipes, new friends, and new challenges.  I've watched some of my best friends get married and married my very best friend only a few months ago.  I'm so thankful for every single blessing in my life, big and small, and can't help but get excited for what's to come in the next 365 days.  Though I can't possibly imagine what's in store, there are some things that I'd like to make happen on my own.

I give you my birthday bucket list!
