  1. Emily, I love these lists and look forward to them every year, and have started making them for myself as well. I think 22 is my favorite- I have had to learn to do that and I think it is one of the hardest lessons that I have learned, but one of the most beneficial. PS- Congratulations about Australia!

    1. Thanks! I am so excited about Australia! I have a ton of fun creating one each year... whether I check them all off or not.

      And 22 will be hard, but I'm ready- yay for introverts sticking up for themselves. ;)
