40 Before 40

View the official and updated list here.

I originally made a 40 Before 40 list in August 2016, which feels like a totally different life now. Things have changed a lot since then. Like…a lot. lol! I honestly can’t imagine what my life is going to be like in 10 years. What kind of person I’ll be, or what I’ll want out of life. August 2016 Sarah did, though. Bless her heart. She was super wrong about a lot of stuff, though.
