I turned 45 today. I have never had an issue about getting old but I felt "off" about this one. But I went on an outstanding run today and felt great about being out and feeling strong. And then I opened my birthday present to myself--a tourmaline Veneta. And I realized there is much to be happy about.

Happy Birthday! You are still very young...but you won't realize it until later!

I think it is a very good idea to get a coveted bag to mark a special birthday - I did that in May when I turned (wait for it) 60 (see why I said you are young... ), and whenever I use it that's the first thing I think of...it made what could have been a downer (still freaked out about that number) into a celebration!
