Who says 40 is over-the-hill?
Why does it seem ancient when you are 18?
Now it doesn't seem that old at all.
Kyle is celebrating his 40th today with no fanfare. He wanted it that way. His birthday request was Aunt Laurie's grape salad. Kim made that for him yesterday when they came over to watch the super bowl. Today we exchanged a few text messages and I got him a Blizzard from DQ.
He wants to go to his favorite restaurant in town the Lotus. Tuesday night is 1/2 price sushi, so that is what we are doing. Quiet, simple, just his style.
Kyle's major dream is to own a few acres and build a log cabin. He wants a warm and cozy place for his family to settle in...a place where the kids will come home to--as he puts it. Hopefully, when school loans are paid for that dream can be a reality for him. Hopefully before he hits the 50s.
My husband is a dreamer. He has a playful side that is always at the forefront. He makes me laugh, usually daily. He always has a way of keeping me grounded when I'm stressed. He keeps my glass half full instead of half empty. He is a great strength in our home. I love him more than I knew was possible 17 years ago.
Here's to growing old and gray together, not sure if I will let as many grays show as you, but we shall see.
