shopping for me again!

the words that i love to hear: 'why don't you see if there's something on etsy that you'd like'! it's hard not to be materialistic when i'm on etsy so often . . . so it's easy to find great things.

i'm turning 40 on the weekend~ which i'm ok with! i was thingy about it a few months ago when i hit the age of outliving my mum. but getting past that makes feeling funny about getting older seem frivolous. it's definitely worth celebrating.

happy friday too :)

June rhymes with moon said...

happy birthday! yay for milestone birthdays, as long as you're now ok with it :) congrats on the 40-ness!

oh, and you should definitely get all of those because you deserve every single one. you can tell your husband I said so.

Christina said...

Surely at least four gifts wouldn't be out of the question? A gift a decade perhaps?

Hope your birthday is wonderful. So glad you've worked through the difficult feelings and are freer to enjoy and celebrate this milestone.

Cheers! :)

Happy birthday-!! walking into the 4th decade may seem scary- but look how far you've come since 10,20,30 and how much better you know yourself and the world. It is a glorious time and I agree with June rhymes with moon all those gifts you should get :)
