Happy Birthday to ...ME! with CTMH Piece of Cake

***40***

Such a big number looks better in pink don't you think?

Actually, to be honest, turning 40 today really isn't bothering me.  Maybe it will hit me next year when I'm "in my 40's" instead of being just 40.  Right now I feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be in life.  My life's journey has definitely had a few bumps along the way but right now things are good - the kids are doing well, Mark is gainfully employed, I'm having fun in my business and am feeling strong as I progress towards my black belt.  I am aware of my many blessings - the love and respect of my husband of 20 years (who still thinks I'm a pretty hot potato), three kids who adore me as much as I adore them (and listen to me without eye rolling), and wonderful friendships with the best group of ladies in the world - both locally and online.  Yep, life is good.  Tonight we're celebrating by going to Tutta Bella in Issaquah for the first time.  We're told they have Neopolotian pizza and this girl who was born and raised in upstate New York and has been West Coast for the past 10 years misses her New York style pizza!  I've got my fingers crossed for a serving of Tiramisu to top that off!
