30 Things That Got Me To 30


This year started out 14,000 ft. above sea level on the mountain top of Mt. Bierdstadt and ended with a blackout (ok, 98%) solar eclipse.


Just to review, here are the 30 things that got me to 30.


  1. Just show up.
  2. Good food is meant to be shared.
  3. God gave me a sister that’s totally different than me to challenge me and help me see the world in another way.
  4. Pay attention to the little things.
  5. Eat your fruits and veggies.
  6. Don’t hide the mess, we all have them.
  7. Do what makes you happy.
  8. Be kind.
  9. Get out of your comfort zone.
  10. Laugh often.
  11. Let yourself feel.
  12. Find your people.
  13. Be generous.
  14. Bring people together with food.
  15. Organization will make your life easier, but disorganization can leave you gems.
  16. Celebrate everything.
  17. Be the kind of person your friends would kill for.
  18. Rest doesn’t mean you’re lazy.
  19. Be fearless.
  20. Don’t exercise to be healthy, do it because you love to live.
  21. Local is always better.
  22. Wake up to watch the occasional sunrise, just because.
  23. Stand up for what you believe in.
  24. Even when there are no words, prayer is always there.
  25. Make good work friends, it’ll seem less like work.
  26. Travel often and bring a buddy.
  27. Go out of your way for someone.
  28. Share your love and light for life.
  29. Family is forever.
  30. God can change everything.


But there are also some things I can’t put into words. Like how much my friends mean to me, especially my friends that are family. Hard things happen people, make no mistake. Let’s have coffee or a drink if you want to talk about it. But it’s the experiences and the joy that comes in every moment of being alive and sharing my life with y’all that makes me definitely want to be here for 30+ more years.
