Turning Forty - Smelling Like a Rose

Today I came home to a fun surprise. The hubs left me a rose with a note. I will be 40 on April 13th of this year and he has decided to start the celebration early. As you can see in the picture he included a small note card with the rose that says “Sweetie: Today begins your 2 week celebration of your 40 years of life!!” I cried, of course, as his timing was perfect. My goal is to update my blog daily so you can celebrate right along with me. What’s a birthday celebration without inviting a few friends along for the ride?

I especially love the hubs' resourcefulness: the pink egg-shaped note card holder doubles as a chocolate crunch Easter candy.

I will also go ahead and answer someone's question ahead of time in regards to the piece of furniture in the background since I have friends with great eyes and curious minds. We bought that piece a few months back, on super sale, from The Oriental Place. It is a Chinese cabinet that is only about 60 years old - they used it to store their linens and things during the off-season.

Larissa, that is so precious. Tell Bill he's "done good". (And ask him why he didn't give Chris a hint three years ago when I turned 40!!) :-)
