Happy Friday V16.8

Guys, today's the today - today's my 40th B I R T H D A Y - I feel fabulous and cannot wait to see what the next 10 years will bring to my life. Milestone birthdays can feel somewhat intimidating - like one day you get scared a bit about it and cannot believe how old you are (say WHAT?!) and the next day you are absolutely content about the fact of getting older and accept it for what it is.

I'm glad we all feel the same way about it - I have gotten so many encouraging comments and emails regarding my birthday today - and it's true, it's just a number and I am going to embrace it. We should concentrate on who we are, where we are in life and with whom we spend our time!

Here are a few things that made me extra happy this week:

1. Enjoying my last week in my 30's.

2. Receiving an early birthday present from my loves.

3. Finding out about a yarn outlet not far away = shopping galore.

4. Casting on for a summer shawl with my new addi needles.

5. Movie night with the fam - we watched Goosebumps with Jack Black.

6. Coffee date with a friend.

7. Lots of happy mail.

8. Emails from people dear to me.

9. Flowers for my birthday - yellow and pink tulips!

10. My birthday today. Looking forward to having lots of fun.

Now it's your turn - what made you happy this past week?

I am linking up with these two wonderful ladies:

    Side note: I am envious of your knitting needle set... but do you prefer metal tips over bamboo?

    1. Thank you so much, San!
      Actually I used to prefer bamboo needles, but have had some issues with them breaking or having splinters, so I recently started to switch back to metal ones - I must say I am in love with these needles!! Which kind do you have again? I remember you writing about your interchangeable needles...

  6. Happy birthday!! Sounds like a great way to spend your week!
