Thank you all SOOOOO much for your kind wishes. It's been a good day! I got to work to find balloons and a bottle of champagne (it's a big number birthday!) I then wandered to Starbucks on my way to doing my stint at the family history center, to buy my very first ever pumpkin spice latte. I started the order with "it's my birthday......" and I got it on the house!!!!!!!!! Paid it forward and gave the money I was going to use for the latte to a homeless guy with a dog. THEN.........latte in hand (which is REALLY good, by the way), I saw that they're starting to put up all the Christmas decorations across the streets and on the buildings.
It's been a good day
