It’s my 28th birthday on Wednesday so it’s time to look back at the list of 27 things I wanted to do in 27th year.
In the end, I did 18 out of 27, which doesn’t seem too bad. Though, it’s worth noting that the 9 things I didn’t accomplish were largely my physical goals (whoops!).
Here’s a recap…
make bubble tea at home(taro milk tea with rainbow boba)
- blog every day for a 30 day stretch
take the dog to a beach(he didn’t dig!) visit the Buffalo Museum of Science(we didn’t love it) eat an egg cream(homemade coconut egg cream) cook my own gnocchi(with sautéed spinach and lemon-brown butter sauce) rock climb(rocked it, hehe) bake a cake from scratch(hummingbird cake) knit a scarf(shown here) build a snowman(fred lasted 1 night before a drunken neighbor kicked him) attend a street festival(East Aurora street festival) (Elmwood Art Festival) toast a real s’more over an open flame(at Taste in East Aurora)

I’m not sure yet if I’ll do a 28 list or not, but I know that it’s going to be another good year!

28. Love your mother. Whoops- you did that, too! We are so happy and lucky to have a daughter as “pretty, nice, and smart” as you!
I finally tried ‘long pig’ kind of stringy and salty, but so was my then neighbor Alex.
