project: 40×40

Several months ago, Ang decided the our activity for that particular girls night would be to come up with a life list of sorts… things to do before our next birthdays. With my next birthday less than a year away and me having the most things to do (it sucks being the oldest sometimes), I decided to do a slight variation from the rest of the girls. And thus, project:40×40 was born: 40 things to do before turning 40. { *gasp* say it isn’t so! 40?! egads! } It’s not a spectacularly amazing list but they are all things I really want or need to do. And as I cross things off the list, I’ll be posting photos to document the event so it doubles as a photog project. And wouldn’t you know it? I found this cute little notebook to keep track of it all. I’ve crossed a couple of these off already and linked them to their coordinating posts.
