  1. Amazing list Aimee. Inspirational! I like how many of them are very reasonable goals.

    I hope you get to cross them all off.

    1. Thanks! I know none of them are too complicated, so maybe I’m taking the lazy way out, but this way I’ll actually be able to make all of them. Hopefully soon!

      1. I don’t the it’s lazy at all. The sheer volume is very ambitious. Cut yourself some slack ;)
