I’m 40 today.  And very, very grateful for my life.

I’m actually about to go out… and spend the day at Exclusive Books… reading… writing…. thinking… and drinking way too many lattes!  Tonight, Nick and I will go on a date.

I am filled with gratitude and contentment.

Thank you, God, for my beautiful life.  For my family.  For my friends.  For my health.  For my talents and abilities.  For my dreams.  Thank-you for everything I have… every beautiful experience…  every meaningful connection… every person who has shared this journey with me.

I don’t take any of it for granted.  Not for a second!

Life is a precious gift – and I treasure mine!

Here are a few photos in celebration of my 40 years on this earth.

I’m eagerly anticipating the next 40!!  🙂
