as much as i would love to be the kind of girl that embrases her age
it's hard, i loved my youth
i wish i could smile & say i'm 27 (my favorite age so far)
today i turned 40
this is my attempt
to embrase it
to raise my chin high, pull my shoulders back
and be proud
proud of my accomplishments, of my wisdom
both of which i could have never achieved at 27
hell yes, i'm 40!
(still a little uncomfortable with that)
my friends and family have spoiled me rotten
which totally helps
yesterday i had a wonderful lunch with
one of my favorite ladies, my girlfriend gina
she gave me a box of the yummiest cupcakes
we shared a lava cake after some fantastic pizza & salad
she gave me this.... so so so cute!
for dinner, i went to benihana with my hubby and kids
it's our traditional birthday place. we all love it!
we had red velvet cupcakes and presents
(a day early!!!)
my wonderful husband surprised me with a very indulgent gift
that i've always wanted, but could never justify the cost...
an HERMES scarf and it's gorgeous!
i can't wait to get it framed and hang it
i'm doing some research on possible frame ideas
i will share my ideas on the blog
and hopefully we can come up with something fabulous!
my kids also gave me some wonderful gifts
|some rachel ray cookware i've been wanting/needing|
|a necklace i've been eyeing on etsy|
and a fiddle leaf fig plant
you know how i love the fiddle leaf fig!
my husband's aunt/godmother send me this e-card
THEN this morning my sister-in-law dropped
off a skinny carmel macchiato from starbucks
like i said... so spoiled!
looking forward to tonight
i've only been told it's sans kids
more later :)
