So for the past few years I’ve made a list of things I’d like to do before my next birthday. I turned 26 last week and just had a look at the list I made last year. I never intended to complete everything on the list, but have made a fair crack at it. A few of the things I couldn’t do as I was preggers, but I’m pretty happy with my efforts.
Here is this year’s list. It will likely be a bit different as I’ll have a newborn baby and so will have limited time to myself, but having a list of happy things is a nice reminder to do fun things before life gets in the way.
1. Do a baby/belly before and after shot 2. Finish the inside of the house completely
3. Make almond butter
4. Finish all my crafty things before starting something else 5. Set up the kitchen properly 6. Take lots of photos of the baby
