39?? It sounds like a made-up age, doesn't it?
It's been a really great birthday. I'm looking forward to going out as a family tonight to celebrate.
I had a ton of fun at Chick Flick Movie Club yesterday ("An Education"), Girls' Superbowl Party last night, and lunch with a friend today (in addition to a beautiful card and roses). It just doesn't get better!
While 39 could a scary birthday (let's not think about 2/8/11 OK?),
I can easily come up with at least 39 things I am grateful for and love.
39. Family - his, mine, and ours
38. My 2 grandmothers
