One month ago I had a birthday.
I turned 40.
What?? Yeah, I think I might have said that a time or two… I just couldn’t believe that forty years have passed…it seems so fast.
I remember maybe in 4th or 5th grade, walking down the street to school with my friend Denise. We were having a conversation about getting older and what it would look like. We did in fact talk about what turning 40 would mean.
We imagined ourselves with families, with jobs…and we wondered what we would look like. In our minds we weren’t sure if we were going to look like an exaggerated version of the nasty witch from Hansel & Gretel or if we were just going to look slightly older than we looked then. Yeah, we were way off.. 😉
I know a lot of bloggers out there now are in your 20’s…mayyyyybe early 30’s. Just a smidge away from being a teenager. You might be at your first job, maybe just planning your wedding or even just had your first child! Maybe none of those things! ha!
Are you curious what 40 looks like? Like, a real 40?
I asked around for photos of people from when they were 40 years old. Any time during that 40th year of theirs. I wanted to show what 40 really looks like. I have both men AND women, no favorites! Some people sent in more than one pic, so I used both!
This is real.
This is life.
This is 40.
These people rock 40. I mean, look at them!
You are awesome! 🙂
Thanks to those that sent in pics!!
