Happy 40th birthday to me????!!!!!!!

40. The big 4 0. I am not sure when this happened. Okay it happened on my last birthday. So I guess I do know that part but I still can’t believe I am…40.

40 is that section in the stores where there are canes, graveyard signs, over the hill merchandise, and everything dreary that goes with that age apparently.

That’s just not me.
I am just getting started at 40.

40 is the new 20

So to be honest, I don’t look my age. I never have. This is a fact that has not always worked in my favor but now? I am going with it. It kind of makes up for those times where I could not pass for 21 to get into bars like my friends did at 19. Well, it almost makes up for those times.

My kids also keep me young. They are almost 4 and 1. They will be making appearances in some of my stories I am sure. With these ages, they make for good laughs (they are a bit crazy too). As much as they have the power to make me feel young, they also can make me feel really old. Hubby is in the picture too. He is 4 years younger than me. Now that I am 40, he can really say he is with a cougar woman now.

It’s been quite the journey to get where I am in life. We all have those journeys where we finally end up where we dreamed we would be, but still we question, what next? This is where my blog comes in. I want to have new adventures and talk about different things that many of us wonder about (random, I know!). There is no bucket list so it’s going to be a lot of go with the flow.  I need to do some things outside my comfort zone (no worries mom…I am still afraid to get a a tattoo!) and just have fun even if it’s every day things.

Get yourself a good drink, eat some amazing birthday cake and follow me on my new journey. Maybe it will inspire you to get crazy and join along!
