The Year Of 40 Birthday Wishes

birthday-cake-380178_1280Today is the day! Happy Cinco de Mayo, Children’s Day (Korea), and Birthday (to me)! 😊

To be exact, I turned 40 years old at 12:45 p.m. in Buenos Aires time zone. ¡Feliz Cumpleaños para mi!

In celebrating, I have put together a list of 40 wishes/goals this year. This is a special milestone and I hope to share my progress with you throughout the year.

So what are my 40 birthday wishes/goals? I know, I know… blah, blah, blah. 😉
