Well its FINALLY here, my 40th birthday!!! I seems like I have been waiting for years for this day to come and I was so excited I couldn’t even sleep so I took to counting down the hour on my Facebook page.
For years I have hear horror stories about getting older and looking older and FEELING older. But I will say that I haven’t experience any of that…errr, with the exception of something with my eyesight (booo!). Anyhoo, I won’t allow there to be anything to dampen my spirits.
Initially I had planned out a big shin dig that was going to draw folks from far and wide to near and dear. But as the big day got closer, I began to feel more panicked about it. With everything I have on my plate, I was just not all that excited about planning a big party that I wouldn’t even enjoy because of the exhaustion.
So then I squashed the concept of one big party and went for the idea of several smaller parties. A party with each group of people from each segment of my life; clients & co-hearts, my online fans, my most cherished girlfriends and of course my family.
The month kicked off with a Girls-Night-IN with the girlfriends that I love so much. Just good old fashion girls, giggling and games. It was a BLAST! Later this month a client is having something at their bar where I will be inviting other clients and some of my most trusted colleagues. But today, I’m simply content with a carpet picnic with my family. My sisters have made all my favorite sandwiches and snacks, my Dad has selected his idea of a great Jai-Jai movie for us to watch, and my nieces are all camped out waiting for Ti-Jai to come join the fun.
So dear friends I must bid you ado, but I can’t wait to keep you posted on how the 40+ ride goes! Until then…
