About Me

This is me. This is 40.


Okay, so maybe I don’t represent all of  the 40 year olds, but I have joined the club and I am excited! My name is Stacey and I turned 40 in April.

I grew up in Queens, New York. When I was 30, I moved to North Carolina with my boyfriend (now hubby). My kids are  4 year  and one.  They put the fun (and crazy!) in life. I also teach first grade. It’s quite rare that there are any dull moments. Kids tend to bring out the bizarre, imaginative and over the top stuff. I am always in the middle of it!

Some people wanted to go crazy for my birthday and decorate as if my youth was completely gone. Others really wanted to celebrate. Other than getting away to the beach with my family, I didn’t care. But then I started thinking and wondering about life at 40 and on. Writing used to be one of my favorite things to do. I wanted to get back to it.

I blew out the candles on my cake and made a wish.

Here is my blog on the adventures and thoughts of a 40 year old who is far from over the hill. Most of the time, anyway.

I hope you will smile, laugh, and enjoy 40 Wishes and Counting! Feel free to share anything you like on social media. The more that go crazy with me, the merrier!
