Monday Morning

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, loves!  And welcome to a brand new week!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

Mine was amazing.  Time at the beach house can't be beat.  I mentioned the routine last week and we pretty much stayed true to that.  Feeling nice a rested and ready to start a brand new week.  And almost a brand new decade.  It's birthday week and I'll be turning the big 4-0 on Friday.  Yikes! Well my 30s were better than my 20s and they say {whoever they are...} that your 40s are better than your 30s so I'm going into it with that in mind. :)

Anyway, hope you have a wonderful start to a beautiful week and I'll see you all soon!

xoxo

Dawn,
A very happy "almost" birthday to you!!!! Having already paved a path into my 40s, I assure you that things will continue on an upward trajectory for you!!

SO happy that your weekend was restful and wishing you lots of flowers, surprises, cakes, candles and balloons as you exit the 30s. Don't look back...there is so much ahead!

xoxo Elizabeth

Happy almost birthday! Isn't 40 the new 21 or something ;)

Inner Outer Beauty said...

Well, turning 40 is big! I hope you have the best birthday and maybe spend it at the beach house, since it's the weekend:) I turned 40 in May (and went to NYC for two weeks with my family to get away from it:) and I still have not totally identified with this new age, but, it's all in your head I guess. And 40 is the new 30... But you're a better version of yourself! Look forward to hear how the birthday was! Love Caroline

Leslie said...

Ha! Geez Dawn.. I wish I was turning 40!! Anyway, you will love your forties. It's when the female goddess thing kicks in and you get in touch with your core being :) Lol! Well that's what everyone says.

Glad you are enjoying your beach-time!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

The big 4-0, huh? All that says to me is that you need a big ace party to kick it off (c: Sounds like you are well on your way this week with the fab weekend under your belt!

Hi Dawn. Oh, fantastic news that it will be your birthday soon. I'm the the 30s and yes, they are better than my 20s. Hope your 40s will be wonderful. Your weekend sounds nice. All of us need to escape from the routine. I was in holidays recently in Ibiza and hope to turn back soon.
Happy week!
