Happy Birthday to Me

This is 40.

10:52 am. Without a stitch of makeup but with a stitch of clothes because my birthday suit is a little drastic.
At 40 I have 7 freckles, three on my face and 4 on my hands that are suspiciously large and light and could quite possibly be called age spots by someone who is mean.

I am 97% in love with myself and 143% in love with my family.

Inside I feel 17, 25 on a mature day. I do not ever feel 40, or 39 even.

At 40 I watch my children get older and it both scares me and makes me happy. I watch my parents grow old and it just scares me.

I am who I always hoped I would be, save a few fiscal milestones and a book or two.

This is 40, and I am fine with that. Lucky even.

Hello 40.


p.s. This is also 40. They stole my title but I still can't wait to see it.

Happy Happy BDAY!!!! You look fantastic at 40 and I never would have guessed. Now I need you to do a post on how you look so good! Let us in on your secret. I know what you mean about feeling 17, 25 inside, I`m the same way. I will never out grow watching Disney movies and eating candy while many of my friends have, I`ll never get that.
Wishing you a healthy, happy year ahead, with maybe the title book author after your name by years` end!
Eat lots of cake today!

Yup - it was your good looks she inherited- if she gets your creativity and writing skills she's golden- write the books already- the fiscal milestones will follow. K
