Forty is the New Forty

September 9, 2008 by

Ten years ago, I turned thirty and the seven days later I got married.  To say that I was out of my mind nervous, crazy, and excited is understatement.  Turning 30 weighed heavy, heavy heavy on my brain, so much so that I made everybody swear that I was 29 at the wedding, not 30.

My husband of ten years (we say HA! to all the nay sayers!) is even more wonderful than the day I married him.  I do not regret my choice for a second, though when I married him it was a huge leap.  Yes, marriage is always a leap and my personal leap seemed rather large even by marital leap standards.

Turning 40 has been fantastic.  Nary a qualm.  For a minute I thought maybe I was pushing the thoughts away and I was wrong.  From where I stand today, life is sweet.  Being a wife and a mother is soul satisfying in a way I never knew it could be.

Love you all to bits-

KT

    Happy Birthday Sweetie!! And Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.
    I think 40 is going to be great. I’ll see you there in 5 weeks or so.

    KT, you strike me as ageless!
    I am a few years ahead of you, my age and kid ages both in sync, and I totally agree with you about 40 and after. I am totally where I want to be in my life, with the people I love; maybe not everything is perfect, but I’m loving the ride.
    Happy Birthday/Anniversary/general merrymaking!
