Well, 40 came and went without much fanfare. I am okay with that, though. The thought of having a big celebration was a bit of a worry for me anyway and both work and home have been more stressful than usual, so I was quite happy to just blend into the background.
I took the day off of work, so I got to lounge around and sip tea most of the day-- I mean, I still had to get up and get the kids to the childminder and all-- but at least I was able to chill out in a quiet house and not wait on anyone. After work, DH brought me the gorgeous cake above, a card from him, and one from the kiddos.Then he took us out to eat at one of my favorite places. Overall, it was a really nice birthday.
And even though I spent some time looking at ideas for a big party and thinking about what would be the perfect way to spend my 40th, it turns out that the best way to spend it was having a quiet night with 3 of my favorite people.
