Dream vs. Reality

I almost forgot that today is my 40th birthday! When I was asked a few years ago what I wanted for my 40th, my answer was a trip to Paris with my girlfriends. That's the DREAM. The REALITY is that I just got back from China with my darling husband and wonderful daughter #1 after having picked up yet another wonderful daughter to complete our family of four. The dream could not be any further than the reality, but you know what? I couldn't think of a better way to spend this momentous landmark year!
