35 List

A little late…..but with the cancer ordeal over with and the ability to look forward, here we go.


Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear me, Happy Birthday to ME!


Today is my 35th birthday. Its hard to believe actually.  I don’t know if I’m quite ready to be 35, THE MID THIRTIES.  YIKES!

Anyways, FOUR years ago I started a “TO DO list” for myself, a bucket list of sorts for the year, 31 things that I wanted to do before I hit 32.  This year I had 33 things to accomplish and you know something I think I did really well completing the majority of them.

Because I enjoyed the list so much, I decided to make another list, my 35 things to do before I hit 36.  So here we go.  Each year there is one more thing….should have started with a count down instead.
