Forty Pics for My 40th Birthday

Today’s my 40th Birthday. I know it’s just a random number and I don’t really feel old. Following the lead of one of the most glamourous bloggers out there (and one of my favorites), Andi of My Beautiful Adventures, who turned 30 last week and posted 30 yearly images of herself, I searched my archives and found 40 pictures of me to share here. I don’t have one from every year (but most), but I do like the collection, and many bring back certain fond memories for me. I know this is a mostly travel blog, and there are some travel photos up here, but most of all it’s my blog, and I get to do what I want 🙂 So thanks for humbling me today.

    What a great selection of photographs – and a belated Happy Birthday to you. You're only as old as you think you are. In my mind I'm still about 25 – though a wise 25.
