I feel I wear the same thing just about every week, year after year. So I decided to try a new style. My friend and I went shopping the day before my birthday to see what might work for me.

It was fun. In some ways I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone.

Yes, it’s past the 30th. A few of these actually took place before though but I have been slacking on my posting. I clearly did not not get all 30 done. In fact, I kept making changes to my list and realized I don’t even have 30 items listed. So…I wouldn’t have gotten them all 30 finished anyway.

It could be all of the above. It probably is actually.

I really stepped out of my comfort zone this time.

Up until now I have tried things that I’ve always wanted to do but they were things I’ve done before. I’ve rode a bike before but never rented one. I’ve hiked before but never been to Kaw Point. You get the picture.

This time was different though. This time I tried something so completely unlike me.

I tried yoga!
