You had your most awesome 40th birthday and I am late.
I’m so sorry sweetie, I have no excuse that is good. I just put things off and it’s a horrid habit I have. I apologize.
Happy Birthday Darlin’
Blessings on this birthday year, blessings of adventures and quiet times, Blessings on all your accomplishments. May you have long nights of peace and long days of sunshine.
Blessings on your finances, may you have love in never ending. 5 years ago
I think celebrating 40 fantastic years on March 3 is more auspicious than February 24. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)
I’m glad you had a good time, Waterafll Nymph! Congratulations! 5 years ago

telling people it was my birthday and how old I was. So I guess the depression of a significant birthday that some people struggle with is still beyond me.
Hey! I like birthdays! And this was one of my happiest yet. Thanks to all my 43things friends. I was thinking of all of you while soaking in the mineral baths. 5 years ago
I hope it was amazing. 5 years ago

Here’s a nonfat mocha for you :)
As fabulous as your 30s were, may your 40s put them in the dust and be the BEST! DECADE! EVER! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! 5 years ago

(I hope you don’t mind that I got you another cake!)
I love reading your “3 Things That Made You Happy” entries; usually you seem to be having such a great time that you lift my spirits when I’m in a down mood. So happy birthday to you: you are a little ray of sunshine in my life, and I would imagine many other people’s lives as well! 5 years ago
...a birthday cake!
I searched “Japanese birthday cakes” and this was the best one that came up. And it’s chocolate! When you get here, we’ll walk next door to the bakery and get a cake for us to share. :)
Happy Birthday, friend. I hope this important birthday is wonderful.

Having turned 40 back in ‘07, I know that there’s nothing to this new starting number. You don’t feel any older, and you can still accomplish a lot of things that you never did before. I didn’t start running until I was 40, and now I’ve run a marathon. Not that I think Buffy should go out and run a marathon too (unless she really wants to), but age is just a number. It’s what’s on the inside that determines how old you really are. Here are my wishes for her for the coming year:
May she have plenty of rainy days in which to run easily, and may they help her to run at least five races this year. May she get off her butt and get going if she’s going to visit Amy in Japan, or may she make plans to visit her back in Ohio if she doesn’t make it to Japan. And may she deal with the VHS tapes, especially the ones cluttering the bedroom. 5 years ago
May you have a year of lovely running days and fast races, wonderful adventures with the chum, and beautiful dates with your husband. Being 40-something rocks! Congratulations on reaching the point where it’s cool to be child-like and natural to be mature. 5 years ago

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already here! When I first found you on 43T, the big four-oh seemed so far off. I’m proud of all the progress you made on your “to do by 40” list, even if it didn’t necessarily go as you originally envisioned. Your list encouraged me to come up with my own “to do by 30” list, and your progress on other goals (not just the Couch to 5k goal) has inspired me in so many ways.
Hope you have a fantastic birthday. You deserve it! 5 years ago
Here’s to another great year! 5 years ago
Hope the years ahead hold the fulfillment of all your goals and dreams and that you have a great day today. All the best and Happy Birthday!
I made these cupcakes especially for you last night, as I was thinking of your February birthday… enjoy!5 years ago
I don’t know if you realize how much the people here at 43T enrich my life. You are one of those.
I hope the day brings you joy and laughter and lots of good presents! Have a really happy day! 5 years ago
I hope all your dreams come true, even the everyday, little ones… 5 years ago

of a fabulous year for you! Happy birthday Waterfall Nymph! 5 years ago
I’m reusing this picture because I think it’s perfect. When someone gives you the same birthday card twice (usually unknowingly) we say it means the card must be perfect for the person. Well, I think this picture is perfect for you. Hope you’re having a fabulous birthday celebration! And that your year is healthy, heavenly and happy! 5 years ago
