#30Lists | Week 2 & 3 by Megan Anderson

Welcome to Weeks 2 and 3 of my 30 Days of Lists! If you’re new to the party, #30Lists is a 30 Day Journaling challenge that makes documenting your life easy with 30 Days of Prompts–and it’s extra fun with a giant online community to share them with! I’m an ambassador for 30 Days of Lists, and you can read about why I love listing here, and can check out my Week 1 here.

    P.S. If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t worry that the listing has already started. My first round of lists, I joined in at the tail end, started with a list somewhere in the 20s, and then went back and did the rest later. There’s no wrong way to list!
