30 Things To Do in 30 Days Before My 30th Birthday

The one month countdown to my 30th birthday officially begins today! Between Mercury Retrograde and my love for the 19th day of January, my birthday is never “simple”. This year I hoped to celebrate this milestone at Disney World, but my bank account had other plans. So instead of throwing the whole day in the trash, I decided to make a bucket list to help finish the last month of my 20s in good spirits.
