About Me

Hi! I am JBR!


When I was younger, turning 40 was a weird thing.  My parents didn’t have any strong hangups about turning 40- it sorta just happened.  Between full-time jobs and three kids and their their respective sports schedules, there wasn’t a lot of time to dwell on it.  And now, in 2016, the Age of 40 remains a weird thing.  No longer is it the expectation that 40 is when you start winding down- that the show is over.  In many ways, I feel like I am just starting to gain speed.

That there is potentially more life ahead of me than there is behind me is soothing.

Rather than pissing away the next three years (and change) I am documenting my journey.  I have already accomplished so much- it feels almost selfish, to want more.  But I do.  I want the next three years to be jam packed full of living.

In the next three years, there will be laughter, pretty things, grown-up drinks, physical activity, being outside, learning, loving, being connected, breathing deeply, creating, enjoying food, and slowing down.

I have three trips around the sun to make some headway on my life’s to-do list.  Wanna tag along?
