So I am about six months away from the BIG 40. (I know you can’t believe it either) Seems like just yesterday I was a sophomore in college trying to figure out what to do next. Talking on the phone with my best friend making plans. We knew where we would live, how many kids we wanted and what our dream car would be. Ok, that was like 20 years ago and yes time truly does fly. In 20 years I have gone from a college student, elementary school teacher, to wife, to SAHM of 3, to an entrepreneur and it has been pretty damn good ride. I am actually pretty excited about my 40th birthday. I guess it’s kinda like one of those milestones that you hear about and can’t wait to see what life is really like when you are in your forties!
For about two years now I have been telling my husband my idea of this huge 40th birthday bash. You know like the ones you see on television or in the movies. I pictured everyone all dressed up in white cruising on this amazing yacht. Maybe about 40 people on board with us and we would sip champagne all night long. It would be so fancy and dream like. I have already told my hubby’s friend who use to sell yachts to help him find a great deal. I even put the guilt trip on my hubby since he has never given me a party in 13 years. (I know what you are thinking, it’s about time)
But last week I had an epiphany. Why spend all of this money on a yacht party for everyone else to have fun and I run around like a chicken with my head cut off? You know somehow we always end up doing all of the work. Besides my birthday is in July. It is going to be hot as hell in Miami and most of my friends will be out of town. What if I could go on the trip of my dreams?
What if we went to Paris for my 40th birthday? That would be so amazing. I have been wanting to go for years now but the kids were a little to young to leave for a week. I could finally see the Eiffel Tower and smell the beautiful flowers and drink wine for days. Not to forget all of the delicious food. So I am putting it out into the Universe I want to go to Paris. I am cutting up pictures and putting them on my vision board. I am going to tell everyone and speak it into existence. Any recommendations? I guess I better renew my expired passport lol!
