Today is a very special day.... my 40th birthday! I'm not into big birthday celebrations (the last time I had a birthday party was 17 years ago), but this is a milestone birthday, so some kind of festivity seemed to be in order. I thought about a special birthday trip, but jetting away to Vegas or Mexico with a group of girlfriends just isn't my style. Actually, the truth is, that kind of trip is out of my budget, especially since we're going to the UK this summer and to the Philippines over winter break. But I really want to take the kids to Disneyland once school lets out, so that's going to be my big birthday trip, and I couldn't be more excited. What better way to celebrate turning forty than by visiting the land of eternal youth?
But I couldn't let my birthday pass without some kind of giveaway on this blog, because I'm so grateful to the support I've received from all of you great Bonggamom Finds readers. I'm far too busy and challenged to worry about approaching middle age and all that stuff, and this blog is a huge, huge part of that! It has given me purpose in life, and I couldn't have done it without you! I wish I could send each and every one of you a birthday goody bag, but I can't, so to celebrate my 40th birthday, I'm giving away a $40 (of course it had to be $40!) Amazon gift card. Thank you for helping me grow Bonggamom Finds to where it is today!
