40

I'll have to get used to it, this leaving my 30's and entering my 40's. It's only been about 9 hours and it's already starting to roll off my tongue a bit easier. 40.

40.

For some reason, this number, this big 4 ish number, it always felt so damn old.

And yet I sit, 40. I tried to hide but you came anyways, you came and you found me and relentless you arrived and so I will greet you defiantly, I will embrace you and love you and I might even kick your ass. 40. So you watch out sister, because I'm coming into my own.

happy birthday to me.

Damn girl. If you are just now coming into your own the world is in for something pretty amazing, considering what you've already done. I can't wait to see it!

Happy Birthday! I'm so glad you were born. You make our planet a much better place.

xoxo

Happy birthday! 40 is the new 30.

40s. I see a spectacular decade ahead for you. And if you ever feel old, picture yourself 10 or 20 years from now longing to be back at 40. Miracle cure, that is.

Happy Birthday!

(and my word verification for this was 'the like'

go figure...)

Happy birthday! Somehow 40 didn't bother me. The reading glasses I just started needing are another story..

Mazel Tov!

Today I watched a bunch of girls eating the middles out of oreos - proof that the middle can be the best part of something, especially life.

Happy 40! Your wildly adventurous spirit will always keep you full of youth, I think.

this is my 40th year, too. I am feeling a little weird about it. But I'm not there, yet... not 'til summer.
