39 reasons to be HAPPY

Yes, I will be 39 today - amazing in itself when I can look back on so many instances (albeit fun at the time) that were not entirely safe! I am really looking forward to knocking down 40's door - I think for me turning 40 is such a milestone.

Here in this house we celebrate birthmonths and not birthdays - gals you should really pick up on this! It's just an excuse to celebrate for more than a day. My birthmonth just has a lot to celebrate: anniversary, 4th of July, and my birthday. This is a packed month of getting together with family and friends and traveling a bit. Today I am off to have the furbabies pictures taken by this famous gal!
