January 1, 2013 begins the year during which I turn 40. This blog will be a journal of my year and all the fun I have celebrating 40 years and trying new things. To help myself stay motivated, I have drawn up a list of 40 things I want to do, try, and accomplish in 2013.

My late 30s passed with little fanfare. As a happily married mom of one daughter, I have become comfortable with my life as career woman, wife, and mom. Things became routine and easy. Now it is time for me to shake things up. Maybe it is my version of a mid-life crisis (blogs are cheaper than a sports car, right?). I don’t want to wait any longer to try some new things and change some old habits. This blog is a record, mostly for myself, of my 40th year adventure. Taking a challenge to push myself to tackle some new and amusing challenges.

Check out my “To Do” List on the right to see what things I have planned for 2013.
