41… Where did that come from?

So about two weeks ago I celebrated my FORTY FIRST birthday.  Wow.  Where on earth did that come from?? Time has FLOWN this year.  It seems like just yesterday that I wrote this list of 40 things to do before I was 41.  And now?  I am 41. Did I do everything on my list?  […]
