Okay real talk: I have no idea if I’ll actually get this list done. I think I was a tad bit ambitious when I wrote it, because I planned this year to stay in Austin for the most part, no international traveling planned at all. Which means EVERYTHING would have to be crammed next year! Ouch. I dunno if that will happen. I’m sure as hell gonna try though! In fact, while writing this blog I purchased tickets to see Punch Brothers live, so I’m pretty excited about that!

I’m also excited to be spending most of my time here in Austin right now, growing my business and strengthening my business and relationships with the people in my life. I’m working on random things, like becoming a night owl or getting fit. Life is good right now and in the past few months, I’ve come to know myself better and better. 2017 is shaping up to be a pretty amazing year.
