Yeah, it's official, I'm 40.
And, let me tell you, so far it's been great.
It started out with a package I received the night before my birthday. It was a birthday shirt - for ME - made by my good friend Maggie.
Then, the weekend after my birthday, my husband planned and skillfully executed a surprise party. I don't have many pictures (guess I should have known something was up when he was annoyed with me for leaving my good camera at home), but it was wonderful! Tons of my friends were there, the adults and the kids all had a good time, and I got a much needed night out with the girls (while the husbands stayed behind with the kids.)
Four of us have all turned 40 this year; I'm glad we got to celebrate together.
Thanks honey. Grandma Mary is so right, you are a keeper. Now, you've risen the bar so high, I can't wait to see what you do when I turn 50!
