age is just a number baby!

aren't you like 40 already!
i kind of feel like i was busy living life
& suddenly the decades have slipped by ...
but you know it is all good!
had a little party last night with a few friends & family
was great fun
loved my gorgeous birthday cake
made by my super talented friend Naden ...
Thankyou so much!!
4 candles - one for each decade
i wanted to say some stuff to them all
about how much they mean to me
how much i love them
how i feel truly blessed having such quality people in my life
i figure they in their make up of the how i know them, actually reflects my life
its taken me 2 weeks to 'take' to the concept of turning 40
but i think i've done with style & a little sparkle!!

what makes the sum of us?
can a person's life be summed up with statistics?
this is kind of what i had to say last night... 
in some interactive way i listed a bunch of my  life's stats ...
i said the stat & everyone or those who knew chimed in with the answer!

it was fun ... & my way of remembering stuff ...
