It's my birthday!

...totally stealing this off SuperKate's morning facebook post, but it so applies here as well...

Today is my 39th bday.

Usually I would refer to it as my 10th annual 29th birthday, but today I'm going to own it. While there are many things I'd like to improve, overall I like this version of me. 39 year old Kate is far, FAR happier, healthier, and fun-ner than 19 year old Kate and much more willing to take risks and put herself out there than 29 year old Kate. I'm so grateful for all the awesome people in my life, and that includes you guys who come here and encourage me and read my blog. Thanks for being here! :)

It's not stealing it's cross-posting. Totally acceptable. Have fun celebrating in class tonight.

Wahoo!! I'll be 39 in August. Didn't know we were the same age (your older kids threw me even though I know you had them relatively young). I think it is a complete shame that birthdays don't tend to be as "special" as we get older. Here's hoping you have a fantastic day and really celebrate properly at some point. I love your perspective on the 19 vs. 29 vs. 39 versions of yourself.

I can't imagine what you will be trying when you are 49 and 59! Life really started getting the best when I got into my mid 40s. And it just keeps getting better. You'll be doing Badwater!

Happy Birthday! Could not agree more. So many good things come with age...like an AARP card. ; )

Exactly how I felt when I turned 39 in January! Wow--we're the same class--how cool is that? Happy (late) B-Day!

Happy Birthday! And you are SO right about determination being the defining factor (for 90% of the population, anyway).
