2021 birthday bucket list bucket lists Happy birthday July 2021

41 while 41

Hi everyone! It’s crazy how life works! I had this great plan of birthday love that was to be shared. I was going to list birthday graphics and music. I even had a playlist. Instead, I just kind of decided to stay low key. God allowed me to make it to 41. That was enough for me. I didn’t need anything else. I had my family, my health, and a safe place to lay my head. Everything else was extra.

I did realize that one thing I want to continue to do is my Birthday Bucket List. It you have followed this blog for a while, then you know that every birthday I like to list a few things that I would like to accomplish during the year. I then review the list at the next birthday to see how we did, and then we create a new one. This was last year’s list . I did some updating so you can look at it to see how we fared!
