Today is my birthday. My 42nd year. I have always loved celebrating and enjoying all the fun that comes with the special day- the cake (caterpillar, of course!), the presents (new books and skincare goodies, woohoo!), and especially the notes and calls from those near and far, in distance and in time.

Last night I closed my eyes around 9:45. I blinked and now my phone reads 4:50 a.m. How on earth did that happen?

I used to love sitting in the quiet early morning with my tea, watching Good Morning America and having a few minutes to myself before the rush of our days began.
