It’s my birthday today. I officially turn 40 and to tell you the truth it doesn’t feel any different than being in my thirties, except for the fact I have the undeniable sensation this will be my best decade yet. I turn forty just having purchased a new apartment and getting a publishing offer to turn my dissertation work into a book. It’s all pretty good if you ask me. Add to that that I have the best family, a great boyfriend, and two crazy, yet adorable dogs, and you could say I have it made. Speaking of which, they are staying in IL while Mike flies me away to Puerto Rico to celebrate my birthday. I couldn’t be luckier or happier for that matter, with Mike and my life right now. Forty is looking as great as anything I could ever imagine it to be. So raise your glasses and let’s toast to 40, to life, to love, to health. May it be grand!

    • Hi! Welcome back to this here forgotten blog. I have been MIA lately, life has gotten way too busy and I have had no time to write about it. But I am glad you are back. The birthday trip was great, we had a great time. And yeah, you’re right, my life has changed quite a bit since I lived in NYC: new job, new city, new boyfriend, and now new house. Everything is good though and for that I am very thankful. I’m glad you’re back!
