40 Favorite Things

40. Yes that's right, 40. I woke up this morning and no longer had thirty in my age. 40. Sigh. I know. It's just a number but really 40? I mean seriously. I'm not ready for 40. So to distract myself today I thought about 40 things I really like. I'm going to list them....no particular order. Just 40 things I thought about just to get me through the day.
1.My family~Of course...I love them more than they even know.
2.My friends~Ditto
3.Ulta~In fact I went there to day and bought some wrinkle cream. Figure since I'm 40 I better start thinking about that
4.Philosophy products~Amazing Grace, Pure Grace....any of the graces. giggle.
5.Lake George
