Mamma Mia! I'm 40?

My fortieth birthday came and went without much fanfare, I don't like fanfare.

I spent a lovely day with great friends shopping and lunching in the cute town of Vietri sul Mare, a town on the Amalfi coast known for its' ceramics.  Can you believe that this was the first time going to Vietri without the boys and the ONLY time I haven't found at least one piece I love enough to buy?  Oh well, maybe next time.

Last night we had our typical Friday family movie night with pizza.  Paul and the boys made me a cake, complete with a big 4-0 on top!  After putting the boys to bed, Paul and I toasted my big day with champagne - truly a nice day for me.

Today we're off to Umbria, a region in Italy with the most charming hill towns and places to explore.  We'll go to Assisi, Orvieto, Deruta (also known for its' ceramics), Perugia (known for its' chocolates), and several other towns that peak our interest.  I'm looking forward to a relaxing week with my boys.

Here is a link to the place we'll be staying, it looks so beautiful and I'm sure it will be in person as well.

I doubt we'll have internet access so there won't be any updates throughout the week, but I know I'll come home with several good stories and lots of good pictures

I plan on working on my 40 at 40 list while there so I can post that too.

I hope you all have a great week full of blessings too many to count!
