50 Things in 2022

live your life Jan 03, 2023

Can you believe another year has gone by? Crazy how time flies, even more quickly the older I get it seems. 

With 2022 behind us and a new year ahead, I thought I would do another yearly list of things I accomplished, celebrated, and experienced this year. Last year I did a list of 100 things, but this year, my list turned out to be just 50 things. 

Oh well! Maybe I just didn't recognize some of the smaller things, or maybe some of my big things took up a lot of my time. Either way, it is what it is.

So, let's dive in, shall we? Here's my list of 50 things in 2022. Enjoy!
