Friday Five: Top Five 40s List According to Frank

Happy Friday all! It came quickly for me this week. Today is an annual treat for me and you - every year, Frank is gracious enough to do a birthday guest blog for me (see 201820172016201520142013), and every year I love it a little more. I completely identify with this year's and hope you do too.


Thanks again to Steph for letting me do this. It’s one of my favorite birthday traditions. Now that I am 42 I am officially “in” my 40s. I love being in my 40s and here are 5 reasons why.

I have a ton of confidence.  
In my younger years I was full of self doubt and I am happy to say that those days are far behind me. I know who I am and I love it. 

I feel young.  
I’m sure that I am not alone in feeling like people who were over 40 when I was young seemed so OLD. While I have some aches and pains that weren’t there before I feel way younger than those people seemed. 

I have my crew. 
Me, Amanda, and Eva are such a great team. Now that Eva is five we are a perfect triangle going on adventures and experiencing things together. We are tight, unified and awesome. 

I’m fine with doing nothing. 
Anyone who knows me will tell you I love to be around my people at parties, mummers events, or a nice dinner. What I really love is that if those things aren’t going on I am not in a panic or sad like in my younger days. I am so happy to just watch Netflix with Amanda and do NOTHING!  

I finally look my age!  
Amanda says I am aging in reverse but I just finally look age appropriate. 42 looks good on me because my features and body has always been that of a 40 something. It’s a huge advantage now that everyone feels like the are aging I look like I did in my late 20s! Take that 40s. 

Thank you Frank for your guest blog every year. I love this one. See you tomorrow! And Evan, happy birthday today. See you tomorrow too! We are so fortunate to have friends like you both for over 25 years.

Happy weekend all!
