Happy Birthday to…ME!

Today is a big one, and I must be honest and say I’m not as excited about this one as I was with the last “big” birthday. Today I…am…forty. There, I said, 40! I guess I’m not as excited about this one because even though I’m in a wonderful place in my life, knowing how quickly the last 10 years went, 50 is just around the corner, LOL.

The great thing about 40 though is that I’m in such a better place in my life. I finally have figured out “what I want to do with my life”, and am so so very blessed to be doing what I love, what I’m passionate about, and getting paid to do it. Another thing different from my 30th birthday is that I have Joel, Isabelle and Genevieve in my life. I am thankful for those three blessings everyday, and that we’re all healthy, happy and able to travel (another thing I’m passionate about) and live our best life. I am surrounded by the most amazing friends, and we definitely have fun when ever the chance presents itself (which is often ;). My Mom lives only a mile away from our new house, and we’re still as good of friends as we have always been. Though we sometimes drive one another crazy, she is one of the few people I know that loves me unconditionally and for all of my flaws, supports me no matter what, and my children are blessed to see her almost every day and to have her in their lives.

So, here’s a toast to 40 and the next decade (which many, many of my friends (and Oprah) have said are some of the best of their lives.

Oh, and I forgot one the coolest parts of turning 40… what I bought myself for my birthday! It arrived on Friday, and we played together at Balboa Park yesterday 😉
