#15 Climb a new mountain

#15 Climb a new mountain

What a perfect location to cross off one of my 30 before 30 goals, UTAH! While we were visiting the newest addition to our family, baby Hayley, we took an afternoon to climb Bell Canyon. It was supposed to be a kid friendly trail but of course Julia insisted on being carried the entire time by mommy and only mommy. What a work out! Totally worth it : )

This September I will be turning THIRTY! I wasn’t going to make a “30 before 30” list of 30 things I wanted to do before I turn 30 because I thought it would stress me out…but instead I feel excited about the year (more like 7 months!) to come! Some of the things on my list I have already done but would like to do again before I turn the big three-o. I realize most of the things on my list are not huge life goals and are more like fun activities, but fun is what I need in my life right now! I have so much to be thankful for already. I have an amazing husband, a beautiful daughter, an old something-is-always-breaking house, a love hate relationship with our dog, a cat who refuses to come indoors even in this crazy cold winter we are having and the best group of friends and family a girl could ask for.
