Fabulous Forty!

Well, it happened. 

I turned forty. 

And as it turned out, it didn't matter what I wore

Or where we went. 

Or what we ate.

Though the hubs planned everything to perfection. 

Absolute perfection. 

And all the little details made me feel unbelievably spoiled and loved. 

The toast. 

My father's quote on the menu. 

The collage of embarrassing photos
{nothing makes a girl feel special like her 7th grade school pic}.

What made the morning, the afternoon and the evening so incredibly special, though, 
was being surrounded by the people I love the most. 

Many of whom I have been friends with for nearly 3 decades.  

One for a very action-packed decade. 

 And one who has only been alive 3 decades but whom holds a very, 
very special place in my heart and in our family's life.

In the end, it was Scott L. who said it best: 

"Look around, Amy, there are only a few people in the world who will stick with you through it all, and these are your people." 

I'm not sure if anyone noticed, but it brought a tear to my eye. 

These are my people. 

And having them all together in one place at one time made for 
one of the most incredible days in all my forty years!
