countdown to 40

Scary, but true. In just one month, I will turn the big 4-0. Ack! I can't believe I'm really so old, LOL! But instead of hiding from my age, I'm trying to embrace it, and am even throwing myself a birthday party for the whole weekend of June 13th! :o)

My friend Kim, who just turned 40 herself last week (Happy birthday, Kim!), gave me an idea a few weeks ago, and I'm planning to make some fun "40" lists for the blog between now and the big day. Here's my first one!
