MLS RAK and The 1st Day of my 40's...

WOOOO HOOOO!  HOLY COW what a weekend!  I have been through the whole My Little Shoebox Blog Hop and there was a TON of yummy stuff in there!  I can hardly wait to get into my studio and get SCRAPPING!!! 

This weekend was Homecoming, which I will post about shortly... football, dance, family in from out of town... WOO HOOO! 

And, today is a rather big day for me... my 40th birthday!  No, I don't feel any older... and, no, I don't feel any different.  I have been a reflecting over the past few days... looking back on my 20's...and my 30's... and looking ahead to what I wish for my 40's.  What I know for sure is that God has blessed me with the most wonderful and loving parents, family that will stand with me in the best of times and will carry me during the worst of times, a husband that is my best friend, the one that makes me laugh and the one that knows how to softly kiss me and make my toes curl... ;-)... my kids who make me proud and amazed and crazy and who I love with every part of my being... and friends... those from my school days through today...  that I know were each hand picked by God and placed in my life for one reason or another... I know that I am blessed... and this is EXACTLY where I want to be in my 40's!

Alright, now that I've been all sentimental, it is time to announce the winner of my MLS RAK! (chosen by random.org.  It goes to #58...

Happy Birthday, Tracey! Sweet, sweet post. I'll be turning 40 next month (even though I still feel about 20), and you put into words exactly how I've been feeling about the whole thing. Thanks! :)
