20 while 20's

I've had this post in my drafts folder forever. For some reason I felt like it was a daunting task to write twenty things I want to do and accomplish during my 20's but when I actually sat down to write it… it took me five minutes. Get it together, girl. 

I love, love, love the idea of these kinds of lists. I'm sure over the years my list will change/vary and that's okay. This is what is important to me now, and even though it may change from year to year, I hope to still accomplish these things by my 29th year. It was so fun dreaming about all the adventures to come and look forward to. Definitely made my day a little brighter. 

Here's my list if you'd like to see...

- Go to three new countries

This is the town my grandfather's family is from in Sicily and I would love to get there soon

- Write my first novel

- Buy a home

preferably this one ;) #thathomealonelife

- Host a large holiday in my own home 
Basically I want this to look like those Pillsbury crescent roll commercials they air during the holidays

- Get married
Just so I can register at Crate & Barrel ;) But seriously, I'm going ham at Crate & Barrel

- Start a family
If only to have people to watch Disney with ;) just kidding… this tops my "most excited for" list. Already can't wait to meet my sweet chickens

- Rescue a dog and/or cat
I'm using the singular form here but really I mean rescue like seven

- Own a pair of Manolo Blahniks
Again, using the singular but really I mean like seven

- Visit {at least} 20 unique restaurants across the country
"At least" is crucial here

- Buy my own car & drive cross country
This will be huge for me… hopefully I write a post about my struggle with driving and anxiety someday 

- Visit 10 new states
This is also up there on the "excited for" list. I can't wait to see more of our beautiful country

-  Pay off my student loans
Right after I buy those Manolos ;)

- Finish my Master's degree
So soon!

- Stay at a luxurious resort for an entire week
This is something I could never afford as an "early twenty-something" so it would be an accomplishment to be able to reward some hard work by getting to do this

This is the Westin resort in Rancho Mirage near Palm Springs, California and I've actually been here (only because when you're 13 your Mom typically foots the bill) and it's one of the loveliest places, ever

- Volunteer/donate to charity regularly 
I typically like to choose a charity or cause each season to donate to or volunteer for, which I intend on continuing throughout my life and not just my twenties

- Learn a new skill and get certified {or at least practice often}
Make up artistry, meditation, cooking, etc., 

- Read at least 100 books
The thought of this makes my heart beam

- Develop my relationship with God
Continue praying and thinking about Him

- Get back to Disney {world and/or land}
Ideally, I would go back every year…reality is a different story so going back at least two more times within my twenties would be awesome. Hopefully toward the end of these twenties I'll have a little one to go with ;) ahh!

I will lose my mind someday if I get to do something like this 

- Learn to be comfortable in my own body
This would be pretty huge and pretty awesome

So there it is! I love when I find other bloggers who have written the same list. I love seeing what everyone's dreams and goals are. What are some things you want to do in your 20's, 30's, 40's? Even 80's!

Here's to always looking forward.
