27 Goals for my 27th Year

Friday, September 19, 2008

CINDESHELLI, one of my Spark Friends, came up w/ this great idea of listing 27 goals to accomplish during her 27th year. I'm stealing her idea since my 27th birthday is next Tuesday, the 23rd. I've decided to come up w/ 9 goals for 3 categories: body, mind & spirit.
