40 Before 40

It's just about time to share my "decade list"; aka feats I want to accomplish each decade. For the most part, they are not gigantic, hard-to-achieve goals, but rather simple and exciting things I want to do. And most of them are close to home, since I live near Chicago and there is still so much of this great city to see.

Do you have any goals you'd like to reach? I'd love to hear them!
