40 again!

Today I turned 40 again! My husband and daughter are doing their best to make my Birthday special. It's my second one here in Germany and it's really different not being amongst family and friends. But enough boohoo I'm 40 !! WooHoo!

My husband and daughter surprised me with a gift I have been admiring since we moved here 15 months ago. I was so shocked and thrilled. I wanted to start collecting these on our different trips but they are not everywhere like I imagined. So this is the first of I hope many more to come. Certainly made my day really special.

It's a nesting doll with The Bremen Town Musicians hand painted, it's absolutely gorgeous! I love it! Thank you xo!

I left a B-day greeting on another post but wanted to make it official. I guess a birthday celebration is where we hang our pointy little birthday hat. How exciting to say you have spent 2 of them in Germany. Many, many happy re-runs of 40! :) xoxo
