TuRNiNG 40

No thought-provoking post.

I am going to bed for the last time in my thirties. I will wake to a new decade of love, laughter, family, friends. Those are the gifts I treasure.

40 isn't so bad; I've got 5 mos on you and I'm still doing fine. :)

Happy Birthday!! About an hour and a half early. But better than way late.

Is there a countdown to vacation yet?

A colleague of mine leaves on Thursday for a cottage he rented on St John's. For a WEEK. Honestly, I hate none of you. None. I swear.

Have a wonderfully, happy birthday! I didn't mind turning 40 at all. And aren't you going on a surprise vacation because of turning 40?

Happy 40th Birthday. One of my bf turned 40 last year and she just made it to 41. Have a great trip. Can you have your dh call mine and tell him I want a trip for my 40th?! ;)

We've been buried by home improvement projects which has kept me from my dear Internets, so I just saw this now! Happiest, most MANIC birthday to you, Steph!!! Hope it was awesome, and you'll have to give me a preview about how cool and amazing and wonderful those 40's are, so I'll be prepared in a few short years. :)

Hope it was a great one!

Happy Birthday Steph. The gifts you treasure are right in line. i woke one day recently asking 'where am i?, what day is this?' and last night two blood donors did their part in saving my life as i received two transfusions.

THANKS FOR YOUR BLOOD DRIVES!!!!!!

Happy birthday.

And they are right, 40 isn't so bad. It's the other crap that happens as we age that really stinks us up! :)
