Decades – Celebrating 40

With over a year into my 5th decade, 40 seems so….normal.

And it is more fun to celebrate as friends turn 40. This weekend, it is Erin’s turn. And what is extra special about sharing Erin’s celebration is there has never been a time in her life that I didn’t know her. Our fathers are grade school friends; we were likely about 10 before we understood that we were not really related. Luckily, we even lived in the same town most of our childhood (I moved a few miles away at the end of my 4th grade year). I have memories that include Erin from every decade of my life – and most years. Our kids are being raised the same way. Trips to the beach, days at the fair, passing down clothes, and for my daughter, learning to take care of the horses.

So it was no surprise that as soon as Erin confirmed the date and time of her 40th birthday celebration, my girl decided she was making 40 cupcakes to take. Happy 40th to a life-long friend – and here’s to 40 more years of memories!
