44 for 44

Today is my 44th birthday. I have been excited about turning 44 for years – I know that is strange, but it’s true. I really love the number four, so turning 40 was amazing. So, it logically follows that 44 will be my favorite age yet. I am a fan of lists and goals (big surprise, I know), so I sat down this weekend and made a list of 44 things I want to do as a 44 year old. Realistically, this list will probably take more than a year, but I really do think I can accomplish all of this in the not-too-distant future. So, without further ado, here is my list. ❤️

1. Zip lining

2. Travel somewhere new

3. Wood sign for front room

4. Salt cave

5. Float therapy

I plan to write about each on the blog as I do them – some may be adventure or create dates, but others will just be part of #44for44. If you see something on the list you would like to do with me, let me know in the comments! Are there things you think I should add? I plan to keep aging, so a longer list is only a year away… 😂
