Here's the deal. I've seen a lot of journaling ideas on Pinterest (are you following me?) lately. Topics to journal, and then share with your spouse. Or topics to journal now and share with your children when they are older. And I thought to myself... why not create a list of topics and blog them. My husband can read them, my children can someday, and you can join in the excitement, too!

Feel free to steal this icon. It's all yours. Just give credit, where credit is due! 

If you have a blog please feel free to play along! The more the merrier. Tweet your posts with #20in13 because I definitely want to know what you have to say! And for you at home watching (i.e. blogless) why not start a journal with the topics? OR this is a great way to start if you've always wanted to be part of the blog world... it really is a lovely place!  It'll be great to share with your spouse now, new friends (what great conversation starters) or you children when they are older.

The only rule is our deadline is this year. 2013. (Get it? 20in13?)

Here we go. 20in13 Topics.
Don't like one? Skip it. Want to see something on the list next year? Tell me!
