40 before 40

40 before 40

That’s me!

Today is my birthday. I’m turning 36, which is just one of those “whatever” kind of birthdays, but I can’t help but think about 40 being right around the corner. Even though I don’t feel a day over 21 (well, a really smart 21), I thought it would be fun to put together a little 40 before 40 list. These are a few things I’d like to do in the next four years. Some of them I could probably get done this week and some of them most likely won’t get done at all (there’s a lot of vacations on this list!), but it’s so much fun to dream big for the future and set some goals. I’ll keep you updated on my progress as I cross things off my list!!
