40 Before 40

You know how you always say, “that’s somethin’ I’ve always wanted to do” ? Well, now, we’re going to do it. I’m stealing this idea from a friend. She did a 30 before 30 list but given the fact that I turn 30 next year, and Jarret and I have a lot of big things we want to achieve, we thought we’d give ourselves a good 10 years to get these items checked off the ol’ bucket list. Many require traveling, also hence why we’re giving us some time. 🙂 Here is our list of 40 things we want to do before we turn 40…wish us luck! List made in October 2012.
