27 by 28

This is the task: complete 27 goals before turning 28 years young.  Seems simple enough.  I’ve always wanted to create a bucket list that was more of an ongoing list and less of an ‘end of life’ list.  A set of goals that can be completed now, not in 5 years, or maybe someday.. but right here, right now! I was also drawn to the fact that it wasn’t measured by the new year and all the new year hopes and dreams but rather my own birthday timeline.  Which, lucky for me, started mid summer.  Whit & Whistle is where I found it first.  Her list really set the tone for a fun carefree agenda.
