40th Birthday Giveaway

I am excited to share with you my 40th Birthday with some gift giveaways!

Well, it happened. I turned 40. That milestone year that you hope will never come. And then it comes and nothing really happens.

Just a regular birthday I guess.

But it’s so not! Forty…40 years of life.

So much laughter, tears, struggle, joy, heartache, fun….it’s been a long ride.

And because of that, I have a giveaway for you, lovely reader, because what birthday is complete without some gifts!!

I recently went away to France for two weeks for my birthday. I’ll be sharing photos soon and telling you all about The Academy I went to. It was a trip of a lifetime.

  35. Happy (belated) Birthday! My husband turned 40 this past November, and I think he mentally struggled a bit with that number, but it’s beats the alternative, right! I can’t wait to hear about your trip to France. I studied in Paris for 5 weeks while in college, and it was a great experience. It was also the best diet I’d ever been on. I’d eat at least one pain au chocolat every single day, and I still lost 10 pounds. I guess I’ll need to go back to lose more 😉
