hello 40

Well I entered a new decade today.   I am 40 and I have to say I wasn’t real excited about this mile marker.  The more I have thought about it and the more I have talked to my fellow members in this elite club maybe it won’t be so bad.

Mr. Miller, with the help of The Deacon, Pops, Mimi, Poppa, Aunt Erika and Uncle Randy, took me out of town this past weekend.  We went to one of our favorite places, Hermann.  It is a wonderful little town of 2500 nestled in the valley of the Missouri River.  It has German Roots and lots of good GREAT wine and food.  Here are a few moments from our weekend.

When I awoke this morning Cameron and Mr. Miller had set the coffee pot and I found this card made by my little man.

DSCN1868I have sung “You are my Sunshine” to both of my boys since birth.  It is our special song. DSCN1869

With this card and all of the calls, texts, hugs from the sippy cup gang and FB messages 40 is not looking so bad.  As Jimmy would say “here’s to another trip around the sun!”.


  1. Happy Birthday and welcome to the club. I joined in September. I keep forgetting I'm 40 though .:O

  5. Awww, happy birthday! You are my sunshine was always my song that my mom sang me too. Now I sing it to my littles. I think I need a mini vaca too, but may have to wait just a little bit longer till the littest is a bit older. Soon. Glad you had such a nice getaway!
