Ok, so I have a month left.

Agh! One month and then it's over. Not my life, I know, but my twenties. Sad. Sad. Sad. The days of youth group, sleepovers, go carts, Guatemala, three-way phone calls, serious boy crushes, summer camp...

Oh, those were my teenage memories. Let me try again.

First margarita,
traveling to Cambodia & West Africa,
At the Orphange

becoming a nurse,

buying my first car,

living in NY & going to Seminary,

taking care of Claudia,
meeting my favorite boy,
delivering babies,
living with Bonnie,

falling in love,

moving to Germany & working at BFA

having my own baby...

Wow! My twenties were pretty good. Really good, actually. Sure, they weren't perfect. But, they were probably the best days, huh? Really, I want to know. Does it get better or were those the "best days of my life?"

Really, really not wanting to turn thirty. Already had a good cry about it. I just don't want to be thirty. Ugh. I hate it already.

Well, if I must, then I need a few goals to look forward to.
Here goes...


~ work in Africa, weighing, feeding and taking care of little babies
~ jet ski again (this time maybe in Florida)
~ work in a coffee place (preferably not Starbucks)
~ become a better photographer
~ adopt
~ travel to the Baltic Islands
~ return to school for midwifery or a Masters degree in women's health/Nurse Practitioner
~ learn French
~ take a trip with just my mom & sisters
~ buy a home (with wood floors)
~ be my pre-baby weight again

How about you, what do you want to do someday?

  1. I'm with you, Leigh. I still have a year left, but am already 'mourning' my 20s. I have a friend who is in her 40's now & she said that her 30's were the best. Here's to wonderful 30's!

  2. you had REALLY great 20s! :)

    I've been 30 for 9 months (and 5 days, since we're counting...) and it really isn't so bad. :) I think they're gonna be great!

    Plus, I get to come to Europe to see you bodacious Bowens in my 30s! :)
