30 things to do in my 30th year!

I recently celebrated my 30th birthday. My sister and I travelled to NYC to commemorate the occasion! (See my minimalist NYC packing list here.)

Since my birthday is so close to the New Year, it always gets me thinking about and planning for the year to come, and all that I’d like to do and accomplish.

This year, rather than making resolutions, I’ve come up with a list of things to do to make my 30th count! I thought about making it “30 things I’d like to accomplish in my 30’s” , but then decided 10 years was too long term and so much less actionable. I want to feel inspired TODAY and be able to cross things off my list NOW, not 5 years from now. Ya feel me?

So … in no particular order, here they are:

  1. Host a dinner party / barbecue 
  2. Have a picnic
  3. Watch the sunrise 
  4. Start a family (big one here, I know!)
  5. Visit a new city (I can already cross this one off my list with NYC!)
  6. Go to a concert 
  7. See another musical
  8. Travel to a new country 
  9. See a drive in movie (it has been years!)
  10. Stop picking my face / skin!
  11. Try making my own cleaning products
  12. Make commemorative photo books for past trips and occasions
  13. Reduce my waste – namely plastic
  14. Attend an inspiring conference 
  15. Get a snake plant
  16. Read 12 books (minimum one a month)
  17. Go on a mini weekend away with my hubby (try out an Airbnb)
  18. Grow my own herbs (and ACTUALLY eat / cook with them)
  19. Learn a new song on the piano and perfect it 
  20. Swim in the ocean
  21. Buy myself flowers for no reason
  22. Get a massage 
  23. Make a habit of charging my phone outside of the bedroom at night
  24. Get in 100 meditation sessions on my Calm App 
  25. Clean out my filing cabinet 
  26. Wash all the windows in my home (embarrassingly I NEVER do this)
  27. Try goat yoga (seriously it looks so cute and fun!)
  28. Make a donation to a cause I connect with 
  29. Make my own iced coffee
  30. Cultivate a gratitude practice 

Are you celebrating a milestone birthday this year? I’d love to hear what’s on your list!
