It must be love, love, love!

Nope it's not Valentine's Day, it's my birthday!

It's a 'significant' one this year, not to say all the others aren't.
But this one ends in a zero - yep, I'm 40.

The man of the house has been going on secret expeditions with the small people, and what can I say but Wow, they have great taste!

Three different coloured gold hearts to represent each of my babies and the chain holding them all together, my lovely husband.

Needless to say I love, love, love it! (and him of course).

Hope something in your day is making you smile.

Oh Karen, I don't know about smiling...your post actually brought tears to my eyes. That is the most gorgeous, thoughtful present. The most enormous Happy Birthday to you! I hope you feel as happy and loved as you do today for almost all of the next 40 and the 40 after that. XX
