Yep, today I'm 40. Don't know where to go with that. Really I don't. I don't feel 40, but then, what is 40 supposed to feel like, I've never been it before, so I wouldn't know. Right? It's just a number, so they say. I can tell you though, this number has been hitting me hard. I don't know why, but it is. I feel like it is getting old or something. Not that there is anything wrong with growing older, it's better than the alternative. Maybe it's just that it is the beginning of another era in my life. I think the babies are behind me, which is hard. It's a sign of age I guess. I know that I am much more than a mother and baby making machine... but that has been my life for the last 20 years and I love it.
Am I past the "as good as it gets" age? I hope not. In fact I think I'm in better shape now than when I was 30 or even 20, definitely have more muscle, but then I definitely have more wrinkles now. Give and take I guess.
I'm not down on this birthday, it just seems like such a huge birthday and I really can't believe I'm here already.
I had a lovely weekend (which I'll share later), a lovely breakfast out with girl friends, gifts from my family, a wonderful swap package arrived(which I will share later too),and lots of hugs and kisses from my littles and hubby. I couldn't ask for anything more. So happy 40th birthday to me :)
And a selfie taken today to remember a milestone age.
Have a lovely day,
