Hey there! I’m Jemma – so nice to meet you.
A little about me. I’m a single mom of two teenage boys, living in San Diego…and I am now 50! Woohoo!
Prior to hitting the half century mark, I was thinking about ways to celebrate what I consider the start of the best years of my life. I decided to start my 50 Weeks to 50 blog, where I took the whole year and experienced life the way it should be – trying out new adventures. I did everything from skydiving to ballooning, from running naked on the beach to getting a reading, from staying at a homeless shelter to attending the RiSE Festival.
It’s not a bucket list, because I don’t plan on kicking the bucket any time soon. But rather getting some activities done prior to getting too physically old to do some of these things. Plus, even as I’m putting my to-do’s together I keep adding more and more items, so I know that I will never completely finish checking off my list.
Well, I had such a great time that I decided to keep going…my 50 Weeks at 50.
Hold on and share this journey with me. Some weeks will be thrill seeking and others just getting around to doing things that most people have already experienced. I have been fortunate in that I have done some extraordinary things and visited exotic places already. So if you’re wondering why riding elephants in Thailand, white water river rafting in California, swimming with dolphins in the Bahamas, or cave hiking in the Philippines are not on my list, well, ehh – been there, done that!
Also, I’m open to suggestions, so hey feel free to comment.
