30 before 30

A while ago, I started a list of things I wanted to do before I turn 30. Whether or not all of these will happen before I'm 30 is another story indeed. If I don't make them before 30, my plan is to make them happen while I'm still on this earth. I have successfully checked 6 of the 30, leaving 24 left (geez, I'm really great at math). I've decided on concentrating on this list for a while instead of New Year's resolutions, most of which never see the light of February. Anyway, here's my list:

1. See wild horses...in the wild.
2. Go whale watching.
3. Run a marathon or half-marathon (check).
4. Photograph a celebrity.
5. Go to Hawaii.
6. Love on someone who has never been loved.
7. See the Northern Lights.
8. Go Rock Climbing (check).
9. Go spelunking (check).
10. Fall in love.
11. Sky dive.
12. Live in another country for six months.
13. Face a fear (check).
14. Learn to ballroom dance.
15. Drive across the country.
16. Buy a house.
17. Try sushi (check).
18. Teach my cat to break dance.
19. Pay off my student loan.
20. Be in two places at once.
21. Own a Mac.
22. Be fearless.
23. Travel. Travel. Travel.
24. Write a book.
25. Take archery lessons.
26. Sell a painting (check).
27. Say what I mean.
28. Mean what I say.
29. Buy a sewing machine and stop sewing everything by hand.
30. Dig for dinosaur bones.

We know how to party.

We know how to party., originally uploaded by Lanna Grace.

We had to do it upright for Karl on her 25th birthday. So the ladies (Bzy, Ray, and myself) picked up Karl and headed for our "Like Totally Middle School Party." We had dinner, an outrageous evening at Skateland (the local skating rink), followed by a girly slumber party. We capped the celebration with a yummy breakfast and bonding/reminiscing that can only come around the breakfast table. You know, to this day, some of the best conversations I've ever had were centered around a breakfast table.

Karl, Happy Birthday! We love you!

p.s. white is the new black for fingernails. check it. bam.

I've recently been inspired by Catia Chien, Gregory Euclide, and Akiane Kramarik. Pay particular attention to Akiane's work. She was born into an atheistic family and at age 4, introduced them all to Jesus. She's now 12 and a professional painter. When asked "why do you talk about God so much?," she answered,

"Because He listens. Nothing comes from nothing. Love cannot come out of nothing. Love is God's light. I just can't help talking about it."

Amen. And Amen.
