Turning 40

Yesterday, I turned 40. Forty. Vierzig. Quarante. Empat Puluh. Frankly, I don’t care if I turned 50 yesterday. I just love being myself, being a mom to a rambunctious 6 years old, being a wife to the coolest and genius husband, being a daughter to the world’s greatest mom/parents in-law, being a sister to wonderful siblings/cousins, being a sister-in-law to the in-laws, being a niece to understanding aunts/uncles, being an aunt to cute entertaining nephews/nieces and being a friend to beautiful people, regardless what my age is.

Here’s looking forward to more decades!
