Peyton Manning of the Broncos, who will turn 40 in March, is the oldest starting quarterback in Super Bowl history.
Well that sentence was like a sucker punch to the gut. Low blow, Super Bowl 50. Low blow.
I am OLDER than Peyton Manning. I know this because I turned 40 in November. And I had a fabulous party. And while I was crying over being older than a two-time Super Bowl winner, I realized that I never posted any photos of the really fabulous shindig I threw.
I have some amazing friends. And they came and celebrated my bourbon and bacon themed party. It really was wonderful. But the truly best part… and I mean this seriously… I asked people to bring Kroger gift cards for IMMERSE, a transition program for kids aging out of foster care, rather than gifts for me. They donated $500 to IMMERSE!
So this is 40. I don’t have a Super Bowl ring. I have these amazing people in my life. I win.
