9 Aug

Today is the big day! I’m no longer in my 20’s and can’t blame any of my mistakes on being young and dumb (here’s to hoping there aren’t many more…). After a lot of thought, consideration and input from some of my closest friends, here it is…the list of 40 things I want to do before I turn 40.

    What a fun list! I’d definitely be down to help you check some of these things off… let’s start with #29 “Witness something amazing”, which could be the exciting reconnection of two long lost friends 🙂

    In 2 years I’ll be in New York, if you haven’t done the fashion show by then I’d be happy to go with you. Also if you need a running buddy I’m your girl 🙂
