If you haven't read Ann Voskamp yet, even though I feel that I harp on about her quite often, you do need to read her website. In particular, read about how she shared her 40th birthday with her whole town. Made me cry. Beautiful. Brought back a few memories for me of my 40th! Heading for 41 this autumn.....days are flying past too quickly - I need to sit and knit more, I think, and s l o w down some.
