The big 4-0!
It happened. I turned 40 this past weekend. I said farewell to my 30s and jumped head first into a new decade!
The weekend was wonderful, filled with little celebrations here and there. I know that birthday's are't about receiving, but I wanted to highlight two of my favorite gifts.
Jack spent a long time smelling soaps at Bath and Body Works that he thought would be gift worthy. He finally settled on a few scents that were pleasant to his nose. Emmie, bless her girly little soul. She bought me a giant diamond ring (fake, of course). And Dan spent many hours compiling pictures and letters to create a wonderful, thoughtful, 80 page photo book for me - a book of my past 40 years. It made me laugh and it made me cry. It was truly one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received.
My sister-in-law MADE this next gift for me. It is a book with succulents planted IN it!
Here is the book that was used...
And here is a close up of the plants...
Don't you love it?! It's so unique and so darn fun!!
I know I'm only a few days in, but so far, 40 is feeling just fine and dandy!!
