So excited to share with y'all a little project that has taken me one entire year to complete.

I started it the day I turned 40.
I finished it the day I turned 41.

What you are about to see is what my "40" looked like.

"Every day of my life was recorded in Your book
before one of them had taken place."
Psalm 139:16

"Teach me to number my days that I may gain a heart of wisdom".
Psalm 90:12

"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning.
Great is Your faithfulness,
"The Lord is my portion."  says my soul,
"Therefore I hope in Him!".
Lamentations 3:22-24

  1. That was ADORABLE!!! 40 looks pretty good to me!! I hope my 40 looks like that!!!!!

  2. what!? you totally amaze me!
    that was super cool! ;)
    um, and yes...i'm with Kristen...40 looks REALLY GOOD!

  3. I love it... what a great idea! :)

  4. So c-ute! I kept wanting to slow it down so i could see 41 is lookin' good. :)

  5. HAHA!! Love it!!! But are you suuurre you're 41? {meant in a good way, of course! haha!!} You always remind me of Faith Hill!!!

  6. what a fun way to document a year of life! you look amazing for 41!

  7. Stephanie! I LOVE this idea! I wish 40 wasn't 3 years ago for me. lol I would totally do this. You look awesome and you and your family are an inspiration to soo many!

  8. Oh my goodness...that is just the cutest idea! Love that you are happily embracing the 40's. :-) I turned 40 this month and I was really surprised at how painless it was---I was so worried I was going to be in the dumps and just "take it to the bed" (as my grandma used to say) in depression over it, but I didn't it. I feel really blessed to be the age I'm have a loving husband and son to share my life with. It sounds as if you are a lovely woman who counts her blessings daily....that is so wonderful.

    You are beautiful and look amazing!!


  9. I agree with Heather! I wanted to slow it down too! Just gorgeous!

  18. Well hi miss honey. It's 4:30 in the morning. Woke up from a scary dream. Jumped on instagram and saw your comment and here I am. You are adorable. Loved the video. That's such a fun idea. I'm right on your heels. Just turned 39 a few weeks ago.

  19. so awesome!! i saw a dad who did this for the first 12 years of his little girl's life. it was pretty epic.


  20. I just found your blog today! This is an awesome video! I'm going to be 40 in October, and this would be a great project for me to attempt. I hope that I can keep up with it. :)
