The beginning of a whole new decade... yesterday was my birthday. In the middle of this horrible flu I said goodbye to my 30s, decided to stop being 29 over and over, embraced the number, and yes... I turned 40. I think I'm a beautiful 40, a wise 40, a giving 40 but if you think for one minute this means I've decided to age gracefully, forget it. I love 40, it's a good number but it's only a number, just part of the total package.
