’40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter,’ she wrote.
‘For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today. Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.
‘After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more.
‘I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40.’

With her birthday taking place in the middle of a pandemic, Kim specifically selected the destination because it hadn’t had any coronavirus cases.

Guests were flown out to the island on a Boeing 777, and enjoyed a week full of beach activities including snorkeling, whale watching, swimming in lagoons, and even a private screening of the 2012 comedy This Is 40 on the water.
