The Other Side of 39...


Pretty good so far, this side of 39...I think I'll stay and play for a while. Actually, I've always enjoyed getting older, there's so many good things about leaving youth behind...of course, that doesn't explain the outburst of, "I'm not 40 yet!!" when my Grandma called to tell me that I've just begun to blossom...and the 40's are the best years...

ahem.

Moving on...

It was a spectacular day, made even more special by birthday wishes near and far...from old friends and new, family...you name it! I started the day with my special coffee at Cuppers lovingly made for me by Megan (who makes everything with a dash of love no matter who you are) a half day at Snap Snap, an over the top beautiful and tasty sushi dinner at Esoji (which I vow that I will be visiting more often...perhaps having a Bento box for lunch in the future...) and cake and gifts at GG's.

The loot was also very good this year...including a myriad useful things to totally indulge and pamper myself (including part of a share of wool from a Sheep CSA, which I am just giddy to receive. It's from the Spring shorn, so we're not exactly sure when it will arrive...but, I will keep you posted) for the last year of my 30's. My sister was also out visiting...we giggled, laughed, sang and ate very well the whole week. I leave you with a little taste of Birthday number 39...

Awww...what a great post. I turn 39 this year too and look forward to my forties. I am so much wiser and self confident going into my forties than I was going into my thirties.

Now come visit me, darnit!!

Love all the photos--and the coffee cup shot is pretty special. Hmm... wonder why I like that? Hee.

And I'm totally looking forward to 40 next year. In fact, within 6 months, I will have a 13 year old, turn 40 and celebrate 20 years of marriage. I keep telling IZ that should equal a Cadillac! Ha!

You know I'd settle for those couches, tho!! :D
