Next month I will be turning 26. It is hard to believe but there it is!
Last year, I spent my birthday in Cameroon with my family and friends and I believe my 26th birthday will find me in US. MJ and I have talked about going away on a weekend in South Texas to the wine country. If things come along, it would be a nice way to celebrate our birthdays. Meanwhile, I thought I'd do a bucket list of things I want to accomplish before I celebrate my next birthday in 2015. Looking at Jasmine's list, I thought it would be a good idea to do something similar. So here are the 27 things I hope to accomplish by July 1st, 2015. Feel free to refer to this post in the future to track my progress (edit: This post is now available as a sticky note in the scrolling navigation bar).
