Roll out the Weekend and Another Decade of Life!

I love this photo --
I can hear the silver bells of the children's laughter and feel the happiness exuding from their faithful companion as he trots after them with his bright dog smile and tail wagging.
Happiness on four legs
-- that's what my son calls dogs, and what a perfect title.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I, myself, am entering this weekend with another year under my belt as well as walking through the gate of another decade.
Today is my 40th birthday.
I think that deserves more than a day of celebration - so I'll be off playing... all weekend long!
See you Monday!

It''s all butter from here on. I love your blog. It is unique from the others. I'm not sure why. Dogs are the best. Total, pure happiness. Happy birthday.

No, no, no! It's your 38th birthday silly! Remember, we're counting backwards once we hit 39! ;) Happy Birthday twin! I hope that your birthday weekend is magnificent in every way imaginable, and that you life and your heart are filled with the gifts of love and friendship as we count backwards 38, 37, 36, 35 ...

Dear Isa ... my 40th birthday was the best of my life. I was able to look back and forward at the same time. A unique perspective that magically happens at your age. Enjoy, enjoy dear blog friend.

Ah niarist is such a wise man dear Isa & so right! Counting backwards is much more fun than being propelled forwards at the speed of light!

The happiest of significant birthdays to you sweet girl. I loved being 40 & I loved turning 50 3 years ago even more! Your son's description of our beloved four-legged friends is fantastic! A toast to you from across the Pacific.

Ahhh Dear Isa...you are SO much more than a simple age. You are heart and soul and beauty all rolled up. That defies any age.
Grace. That is you.

May you enjoy every minute...may you be fetted and spoiled. May you digest all the love you will be showered with.

May you BE.

To 40! Life only gets better from here...
