You're here! You didn't think you'd live long enough to see 40, but unless something unforeseeable happens in the next few months you will be celebrating the big 4-0 this summer.

You are counting down the days until your girl's trip to the beach to celebrate with other friends who are also celebrating milestone birthdays this year.
