On Monday morning, I awoke to find even bigger bags under my eyes and four new grey hairs at the crown of my head.  I stared at my tired reflection in the mirror and thought, "Wow, is this REALLY what the next decade is gonna look like?"  Here I was all prepared to rock my forties like a champ, but the day sure wasn't getting off to a very good start.

Luckily, though, the day did a massive 180 after I dropped off the kids at school (funny how that happens, isn't it?)  A slew of good friends, pretty flowers and thoughtful gifts helped to turn my frustrated frown upside down.  And to cap it all off with my favorite trifecta -- wine, sushi, and dessert?  Well, that was just the icing on my red velvet cake!  Perhaps the next decade is gonna be the brightest one yet....

** Yes, they REALLY did put 40 candles in that little cake, and yes, I REALLY did almost catch my hair on fire trying to blow them out.
