Fifty Fabulous Things

Well this list came about as I was approaching my big 50! A friend of mine had inspired me to do this having seen his post on Facebook about wanting to do 50 acts of kindness for his fiftieth birthday year.  I decided I was going to have a birth year and I’m going to do 50 fabulous things that will make me happy, many of which include family and friends. A girlfriend of mine was also going to be celebrating her 50th in 2016 as well, so we decided to both compile a list and we are going to compare notes as we go along.

Some of these things I have already done in my lifetime but intend to repeat them again during my 50th birthday year.
