Celebrating the Year of 40

I turned 40 yesterday. I know! Hard to believe, right? (Don’t answer that.)

I am continuing to celebrate for the remainder of the year. Here are a few reasons why I am celebrating my year of 40:

  1. I am in love with the guy I married when I was 18.
  2. I am healthier now than I was a year ago. Sure, I have some weight to lose but that’s OK — that gives me something to do in 2011.
  3. I finally had the courage to make a big change (more on that in the coming weeks).
  4. My son got engaged to the love of his life on my 40th birthday (and we love her, t00).
  5. My daughter is a delightful teenager (one in a million!) and a fantastic student.
  6. I have really wonderful friends, (some of them I’ve never even met in person).

And last but not least, I have YOU – my blog readers who have been here for years and years — always coming back for the latest installment of my ramblings. Thank you all for celebrating this year of 40 with me.

    I love your attitude and view on life. I’m 48, pushing 49, and I’m much in the same boat you are. Loving life, my wife, great kids who actually enjoy being seen with me in public (and invite their friends over to hang out with us!). Here’s to a great 2011!

    And, what a fabulous 40 you are! Having survived it myself, I love your attitude of celebration. Congratulations on your son’s engagement, too. We look forward to seeing more of your adventures this year.

  3. This is all so great! I am thrilled to hear that the Boy (should we call him the Man now?) got engaged and I am looking forward to hearing more about your big news.

    If you ever want to go walking or running or biking, let me know.

    OMG! Congratulations! The best is yet to come right? Of course it is.

  6. Amen sister! Celebrate the wonderful life and family you’ve built – and all the people you touch in such a positive way everyday through your writings and work. Congratulations on The Boy’s (The Man’s?) engagement, and enjoy all of the what I’m sure will be amazing changes in your life over the next year. Love you bunches!!

    Welcome to the fabulous 40’s!! I swear, if I had known how much fun these years would be, I never would have dreaded the big 4-0. Happy Birthday and welcome to the club.
