I thought turning 40 was going to be a big deal. Well, it was a big deal, but for reasons I did not suspect. I thought it was going to be a big deal because I was going to fall apart and worry about my appearance and getting older and being over the hill. None of that happened! It was a big deal because my wonderful hubby threw a big blow-out with 150 of our closest friends and family members. It was fantastic! Turned out to be my best birthday ever. Boy do I feel silly about worrying. I should have been looking forward to it. And, I might add, I looked great!
