2017 Birthday Bucket List Check In

With 2017 here I thought it was time to look at my birthday challenges again. It has been four months since the last review.

If you haven't seen it before, on my birthday I set a number of goals for the year. This year it is "35 While 35;" the challenges are divided into seven areas, spiritual, relationships, adventure, hobbies, culture, health, and second chances.
