Birthday Sale!

Tomorrow is my birthday.
On November 25, 2014... I will officially be in my fourth decade.

Yep. Four-Oh.

Forty.

40.
And I honestly couldn't be happier about it! I like milestones, and this feels like a big one in all the right ways. Four decades of life experience under my belt, and likely at least four more to go (if I trend with most of my female ancestors). So that means I'm at my middle decade. Hows that for sobering/invigorating? I've been reading a book called Pursue the Intentional Life by Jean Fleming. In the beginning, she asks "What kind of old lady do I want to be?" This feels like the right time to be thinking about such deep thoughts, and a good time to be able to change course if I need to.

And also a good time to offer a nice sale to all of you loyal readers. My birthday present to you, so to speak. If you spend a minimum of $10 in my etsy shop, you'll be able to enter the coupon code "40isthenew30" at checkout to get 40% off of your order. Starting right now, and ending at midnight tomorrow the 25th.

Happy shopping!

Wishing you a very happy birthday and thanks for the generous gift to the rest of us. At 58 I am already old as dirt, but I hope to continue driving my Corvettes, shooting my guns and doing my needlework until I drop in a heap! As the corny old saying goes, you are only as old as you feel. Enjoy 40...seems like a distant memory to me!!

Happy Birthday wishes to you, Beth. Yes, it does get better but it also gets harder. I thought by now I'd have ALL of life's answers (I'm 63, but just barely). However, no one ever told me that they change the questions and finding those answers becomes more elusive!

Happy and best wishes to you on your 4th decade of life!
