The Big 4-0 in NYC

You might recall a few months ago when I won this trip to NYC from Armitron watches.

Well, the time has come!!

We leave tomorrow morning, bright and early, on what happens to be my 40th birthday.

I know some other women dread this milestone, but I honestly have no worries about turning 40. Yeah, I have to color my hair every six weeks. I don't get carded anymore. Whatever. Okay, so things are a bit squishier in the middle than I'd like. That's life. I don't mind getting older, as long as getting "wiser" comes along with it.

In any case, my birthday will be spent flying to New York City with my husband, walking the city streets and enjoying a lovely dinner at Lavo. Over the weekend we will be touring the 9/11 Memorial site, walking through Central Park and getting pampered at Bliss Spa.

I'm excited, of course. A chance to celebrate a milestone with new adventures! Happy Birthday to me!!
