It’s here.

The day I turn 40.

And I’m not as freaked out as I thought I would be.

In fact, I feel ready to take on this decade!

This past decade has been filled with blessings and challenges.

Some of the highlights:

Moving to Kansas and experiencing life away from family and friends for the first time

The birth of our first child, a ruptured ectopic pregnancy scare, and our surprise second child

New jobs

Births of four nephews

Buying our first house

A new Stepfather and step-family

Moving back to Illinois

Rediscovering my faith

Getting baptized

A renewed commitment and strength in our marriage

Finding an amazing church family

New friends

A new brother-in-law

A renewed desire to get healthy and workout

See ya ’30s!!

40 – I am ready for you. Bring it on.
