41 things for 41

Tomorrow I turn 41, so I wanted to make a little wish list of 41 things I want to accomplish this year - some big, some tiny, but all of importance to me.

Before I begin this little list - I want to give thanks to all of the people who have made my 41 years on this lovely planet of ours so wonderful - I was actually going to list everyone by name, but then I had this terrible fear that there'd be one important person who I accidentally left off the list because I am that absent minded. Over the years we are shaped by the amazing people we meet and I honestly believe that some people, for some unexplainable reason,  you never really click with no matter how many times you interact, then others can come into your life, and as soon as you start talking, you feel like you've known them forever - they make you feel like you're home.
So to all my forever friends, I love you for who you are, and all that you bring to my life. And to Craig & Stella, as long as I'm with you, I feel happiness and peace within my soul.
