LIFE REALLY DOES BEGIN AT 40... RIGHT?!

July 30, 2017

As far as I'm concerned life really does begin at 40... everything you do up until then is just research.  A dress rehearsal of sorts.  

 

When I was younger I thought for sure I would freak out about turning 40.  I wonder why?!  I guess it's because I kind of set that precedent.  I did NOT like turning 30  & DID kind of freak out.  I had been living with one of my sisters - who y'all know are my best friends - and she got married the same week I turned 30... and moved out... 45 minutes away!  It felt like I was losing my best friend.  I felt kind of untethered.  I was losing my room mate & best friend,  didn't feel secure in my career, was single & getting old all at the same time!!!!!

 

Now looking back I know how silly & insecure I was acting.  I didn't lose a sister & best friend - I gained a brother & shortly after a niece & nephew - who y'all know I'm obsessed with.  The loss of my room mate motivated me to become a home owner.  I've become totally secure in my trade & the blog.  And lord knows I wasn't getting old at all!  I look back at pictures of my sister's wedding & I look like a baby!  

 

 

 

 I entered my 40th year feeling completely different.  I love my profession & get positive feedback regularly.  I love my home & enjoy everything about it.  I love being an uncle & feel really secure in who I am.  Of course I would love to lose a little weight & tweak some things but for the most part I actually like the way I look better now then when I was a little skinny minnie.  

 

This may sound a little cocky but the truth is I have a TON to be grateful for!  

 

I spent my birthday weekend with my sisters & some friends in New York City & had an absolute blast - from brunch at Bagatelle to Kinky Boots on Broadway to dinner at STK - it was all a blur!  And check out this view of Times Square from out hotel room.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Cheers to turning 40 -
