I turned forty in October 2014. It was a good year. Did I finish my 40-before-40 list?
Nope. Not even close.
The pursuit of this list was amazing and I am glad I could do many of these with friends and family. Besides, the fun did not end when I turned forty.
The fun begins now…
Look out FIFTY! I’m coming for you…
I’ve been seeing this a lot on other blogs and have been inspired to create my own list of 40 things to do before I turn 40. I’m a little scared though because I turn 40 in October! Okay, not this October but in four years! October 2014! Am I going to make it? Are you going to help me? Is there anything on this list you want to do together? Eeek! The pressure is getting to me. Make your own list and let’s get crackin’!
