In 3 months

3 months from today I'll be 30.
As it approaches it seems less daunting, but 30 was always the number that screamed adult.  I should have accomplished all kinds of responsible things by now  - career, family, mortgage & retirement savings portfolio wise...  I guess I'm a little late.  It's a good thing it's not a race. 

However, there are a few things that I'd like to accomplish in the next 3 months before my birthday.

  • Plan how to celebrate my birthday.  A trip or great party would soften any 'getting old' blow.  Toronto party location suggestions welcome!
  • Beautify our apartment.  Tidy things, finish hanging frames and curtains, purge all unneeded stuff.  Maybe even rearrange furniture or paint.
  • Get in better shape.  I'm so happy that the pool is open in our building from now until the Sept long weekend.  I'm going to take full advantage.  (I'm 3 for 4 days so far.)
  • Get into a routine with my Etsy shop.  As in creating things for it, listing them, advertising and drumming up some business.  It would be amazing to have it be a steady source of income.
  • Find a new job.  With the photographers I currently assist, I don't work enough for my liking and I'm not learning much from them anymore.   Need a new boss or scene. 
  • Take more pictures.  Of life, of random things, of my family and friends - and not with my cell phone, as convenient as it is to carry. 
  • Just for kicks - getting to 200 blog readers would be fun too. 
When is your 30th birthday?  Does 30 intimidate you,  or has it already come and gone without event?
The best part about any birthday - eating cake!


  1. Sounds like a great list of goals, you should totally be able to achieve them! That cake looks delicious too........ yum!

    You'll rock 30, age is a set of mind anyway right? (or however that saying goes.... hahaha!)


  2. hi! i will be 40 next month! yikes!! for my 30th i hired a little boat for 12 friends and we had a dinner cruise up the river, it was great fun!! i am about to help you get closer to the 200 follower mark :)

    1. Thanks Claire, and the river boat sounds really fun!

  3. Good list!! I've been thinking I need a summer game plan, so maybe I'll have to make a list for that sometime soon.

    Don't stress about turning 30. Age is just a number. Act the age you feel. You don't have to be a grownup if you don't want to. :)

  4. Great list! And very adorable blog! I am turning 30 in February (yikes!) but it's ok I don't look or feel like I am! Enjoy it and you look great!


  5. I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions for a party scene. It's been 9 years since I was in the GTA, and back then going to Canada's Wonderland was the height of sophistication.

    p.s. Thanks for the swimming/yoga advise! Seriously considering the yoga side of it. Another incentive to move back to Canada - outdoor pools. Jealous.


thank you for leaving a comment! i love to know what you think :)
