Hello!  My name is Shannon and I'm a 39 year old freelance writer and homeschooling mama..  My husband, Aaron, and I have been married for 13 years and together have three children (August, Martha and Hazel) and two dogs (Maude and George).

My 40th has been on my mind for a couple of years now.  I wouldn't say I feel old, and I certainly am not dreading turning 40, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel different as this milestone approaches in the horizon.  I clearly remember when my parents turned 40, thinking that it was a huge number...perhaps I'm viewing this birthday just a bit through those 16-year-old eyes.

As a result, I have been spending the past few months reflecting upon the many trials and countless blessings of my past 39 years of life, and have decided to do something big as I approach turning 40 (on June 30, 2015)...something that I hope will make many people smile.  And that something is the Kindness Countdown. 

And so, I will be completing 40 random acts of kindness over the next 40 weeks...for complete strangers (and a few people I know) and documenting them here to entertain and hopefully inspire you to spread the kindness in your lives.  Check back often for updates on KC preparations and completed acts.  This is going to be fun!
