Where’s Literate Housewife? (Birthday Vaca Day 3)

Happy birthday to me! I’m 40 today! What better place to reach this milestone than a private beach with a catered lunch? I can’t think of another place I’d rather be. I’m going to drink in every minute of the time I’m in the Bahamas.

40 never looked so good…

                            Happy 40th! Just wait–it’s a great age. And btw, I can relate to you being a business analyst who loves literature. I was a chartered accountant until my writing reached a place where it could pay the mortgage. I was just past 40 then and so much more happened after that.
