Something Happened Last Year

At the tail end of 2014 something happened to me.  I turned 40.  That's right, the big 4 0.  It just seems so, I don't know, middle aged.  How is one supposed to feel when they reach such a milestone?  Proud?  Anxious?  Mournful?  Accomplished? I've been trying all those emotions and none of them seem to fit.

My sister-in-law Diana offered to take me to breakfast for my birthday.  I love going out for breakfast!  I told John when I got home I wanted to crawl into bed with my book and read the day away.  When she was driving me home she pulled over in front of a spa and told me to get out.  What?!  She gave me a card from my man that said I was getting a day at the spa.  No way!  I've never been to a spa!

They pampered me.  They pampered me well! 
It began with an hour hot stone massage followed by a
scalp massage
plant peel facial
lunch with roses from John and my kids
herbal conditioning treatment for my hair
hair cut and style

So luxurious!  It was simply divine.  I felt so spoiled.  I felt like I was ready to take on 40!  John said he wished he had taken my picture afterwards because I looked so happy.  Probably because I was!
