Hey, everyone! Time to celebrate!
In case you didn’t know, August is my birthday month. This is one of those milestone years for me. I am turning the big 4-0. Although, some days, I feel like I’m 27 and others like I’m 72.
The pandemic doesn’t really affect me because about all I usually do on my birthday is go out for dinner. Nothing really fancy or crazy. So this year will just be takeout at home. I’ll definitely treat myself to something I don’t usually get and find some gluten-free dessert.
Or maybe I’ll order some gluten-free cupcakes or something. I’m undecided.
So what is it about these milestone birthdays that make us think? We look back on everything we’ve learned over the years and look ahead to what we still want to achieve. Sure, we do a little of that each January, but it always feels so much bigger and important when our birthday rolls around.
So this month, I’m going to take some time to reflect on my 40 years of life. What have I accomplished? What have I done? Seen? Learned? What do I still want to do? This month you may see these items as a blog post 40! Things. I also want to reflect on birthday memories from the past (oh the 80s!). Lastly, My Favorite Image is going to be epic. And there may be a prize.
Also, since it’s my birthday, I’m giving you 30% off all prints from my shop. And if you join my email list prior to 8/1, you will get a secret code for 40% off! So go get on that list! The link will be at the end of the video transcript.
In the comments, leave either your favorite birthday memory or something you’ve learned about life in your years on earth.
