Today is my birthday, I am 40. I’m excited and I’m pensive. I’ve never felt more confident in my skin, never known myself better (strengths and weaknesses), never been happier with my family and never been more excited about the possibilities of my professional life. Now nothing in my life is perfect, it is messy and disorganized, I don’t know how I’ll get to the next step in the career I want or if I will ever get the position I want, my children are getting older and their problems will only get bigger and scarier and honestly anything can happen to change everything. Today I am going to be happy and enjoy my first world Canadian problems, I’m going to take the day to count my blessings and revel in the opportunity of turning 40 because I have known too many who never got that chance.

    I quite like the GERRY WEBER TAIFUN Blue Jumpsuit, the shoulders & front trim are lovely and would look classy yet comfortable for the office! The Taifun jumpsuit is the spring essential!


    I would use the mutli way bag for everything from taking the kids to the park to shopping and all that is inbetween 🙂

    Happy birthday! 40 is no big deal 🙂 I thought I would melt down when I hit it in 2012, but it came and it went and it was all good 🙂 P.S. You look AMAZING 🙂
