Oh man. I was so excited putting this together. I was first inspired by my amazing friend, Valerie, who posted a before-I-turn-thirty bucket list to Facebook not too long ago. Valerie is the epitome of a supermom. She works, she cooks, she reads, and she runs, with her two boys strapped in a double-jogging stroller… Continue reading The bucket list
