30 Things Before the Big 3-0

I've got less than 22 months before my 30th birthday rolls around and just a few things I'd like to have experienced before I enter the next decade.

Some are little things, some seem quite impossible to me right now (finances...bleh!) but they either tug at my heart in quiet moments of wanderlust, or they are things I whole-heartedly believe every self-respecting 30-something year old should have checked off a list.

I made this list waaaaaaay back when I was 26 and had not yet given birth or gotten knocked up again, so some may seem a little ambitious now... but I'd love your encouragement and accountability. And if you can facilitate any of these things, by all means give me a shout! (Any biscuit-making queens out there?)
