Forty Before Forty: A Milestone Birthday Bucket List


Hello Sunshine! After my last birthday, my mind drifted on a little list I had started before I was 30. I had this grand idea to make a birthday bucket list of little things I wanted to accomplish before my milestone birthday. Well, I tucked that list inside one of my many notebooks at the time and there it sat long after my 30th.

With my 40th just 3 years and 6 months away I thought I would dust off my list and challenge myself to completing 40 things before I turn 40. This list is comprised of things from my original list and some recent ambitions.

  3. Awesome list. My favorite is learn to swim. Take me with you. You should set a goal like 10-12 things per year.
