My previous 30 by 30 list.

After my previous post about my 31 by 31 list, I decided to post my list from last year.

1. Volunteer- Habitat for Humanity with work, I had a great time with my old co-workers at Humana.


2. Get/Keep in shape: run 4 times a month and 3 yoga sessions a month. I did pretty good at that last year.

3. go kayaking/canoeing- Last September, I went kayaking on the Charles River.

4. Go on a hike- Check!! The Blue Hills with Jules and Lucy

5. Follow a new recipe each month- I didn’t go great on this one.  But last October, I made chicken noodle soup and chimichangas (although I used beef instead of turkey).

6. Visit a farm- I went to Marini Farms last October for this flashlight corn maze on a double date. We visited the farm shop where they were selling apples, so technically I visited a farm, but I was hoping to go Apple picking year.

7. Find a new job that I enjoy- I accepted my new job at the end of July- just in time.

8. Monthly me activity (hair cut, manicure, pedicure, brow wax, massage)- It’s embarrassing that I had this listed, but I needed to force myself to spend some time and money on ME!

9. Monthly friend event (meetup, dinner with friend). I for sure did that!!!

I had 3 Boston Bruncher events (August at OM, September at the Cottage, December at Harvard Common Press).
