Fabulous Forty!

 It's really hard to believe that I'm now 40 years old. Is this what 40 actually feels like? I always thought that was pretty old, but I'm not old! Right? RIGHT!? πŸ˜‚ I still feel like I'm in my early to mid 30s. In any case, I'm happy to be 40 and I'm thankful to be starting a new decade of life. Despite the craziness of the world and the uncertainty of what is to come, I hold out hope that no matter what happens, this will be my best decade yet. πŸ™Œ

My birthday itself was on a quiet, peaceful Friday on Cape Cod and it was pretty relaxed and low-key, which was fine with me. My mom and the boys and I went out to breakfast at Pancake Man because I love their fresh-squeezed orange juice and creamy hot chocolate.

Fun fact that I learned from this email that day: Harry Potter and I have the exact same birthday. 

We did a fun pirate-themed escape room at the place we went to on the 4th of July. We won!

For dinner we went to one of my favorite places on the Cape, the Old Yarmouth Inn. I had a super-delicious prime rib.

On the ride home, it was my birthday on the clock!

At home we took pictures with my special birthday balloons, I opened presents, and we had cake and ice cream.

Peter got this really cute cake done for me at a bakery that I like. Roses and a cute owl, two of my favorite things!

Lit up with love 😊

Wise words for a new year and new decade from my page-a-day calendar that day.

It was a nice day! Bring on the 40s!!
