40 Before 40 Bucket List

This year will be a very special one for me. At the end of this year I’ll be celebrating a very round birthday. For some reason I’ve been thinking about this upcoming day for a while. I’m not afraid and it won’t hurt. I think it’s going to be awesome to be a 40-year-old woman. But these types of round numbered birthdays always bring some self-evaluation with themselves. I can’t wait for the big day, and I’ve already written up all of my wishes and goals that I’d like to accomplish before I’m 40. Some things have always somehow been missed in my life, and others happened so long ago that they would be great to repeat!


So here’s my bucket list…Some of these things are already in process or recently come true!
