Decided to Have a Second Child

Happy Birthday to Me!

Turning 40 feels like a new beginning, the second phase of my life. I celebrated today with friends at our house (plan B when incessant rain put an end to polo tailgating). When it turned dark, we walked across the street to the cemetery and released a few wish lanterns into the night. The kids loved it. My friends sang “Happy Birthday.” It was awesome.

I also announced at the party that we have decided to try for child #2. My husband and I have been back and forth on the idea since I turned 39. And within the past few months, something just clicked.

I never thought I’d be entering my 40s like this: new career, new child. However, it’s the perfect end to this blog of daily challenges.

I am excited to see what the next phase of my life will bring.
