My 40th Birthday in Photos


I can admit now that I was worried my 40th birthday would be overshadowed by our new engagement and the busy-ness of a few things to come. I thought, gosh, every year it seems like there is something else to be focused on... If you didn't know it, I. Love. Birthdays. I think they should be CELEBRATED! It's your life!! The day you became!! And you deserve Queen/King treatment!
I had nothing to worry about, Luca, my friends, my family - they showed up and it was the best birthday EVER!!!!

It started the night before with my girls and continued with my traditional birthday run, gifts, shopping, lunch in Levanto, sun in the yard with my loves and more gifts, flowers, dinner straight from our garden, more flowers, cake and prosecco and runs from the states! I feel spoiled in the best way possible and SO loved!
