Forty One

Yesterday I turned 41.  (okay so I'm posting this a few days late)  Abigail was the first one to mark the occasion with her tip toe feet entering our bedroom and her sweet, "happy birthday mommy" because she is just really the first one to talk in the morning.  She woke up early and had trouble falling asleep last night as she does always when she knows that the next day will include her grandma and grandpa.

And in honor of that big day I take a look back at some of my favorite moments of my 40th year.  Some here in pictures and others in pictures just in my head.  Memories forever.

Here are a few moment of the year I spent as 40

  5. I've been meaning to ask you if you know the blogger Kelly Hampton from Enjoying the Small Things? You two are IDENTICAL bloggers in form - even in photography. I've never seen anything like it. If you haven't seen her, check her out.

  6. Happy Birthday Tara! I love this post. I always find it fun to look back on the past year when one of my children have a birthday but not for myself.

    I have to tell you my husband and I are trying to date again thank to your idea. In December to went out and then just today we went to lunch. I am going to work on something for his birthday in June similar to what you did. I may need to talk with you when it gets closer.
