    Wishing you a very happy birthday, Sam!!! It's not about age, it's about how old you feel!
    When i started to read your blog quite some time ago, I was pretty surprised when I found out your real age - because your pictures and writing style left a much younger impression, in the most positive way :)

    Age - it's all in the mind!! (or a vicious rumour, whichever you prefer!!)

    Wishing you an idyllically happy birthday and may the coming year(s) be filled with good wine, great food and outstanding company!

    Believe me, Sam -- this milestone is only a beginning. Many, many happy returns of the day. Light up New York and have a lovely celebration.

    PS Your mother is absolutely glowingly beautiful in the photo.

    Happy Birthday! I'm looking forward to the description of tonight's birthday dinner! :-)

    This is what comes from arriving late to a party. I knew your birthday was coming up but I didn't know that it was *that* birthday. Frankly, my dear, I'm gobsmacked. I had lowballed your age by a good 15 years. So fine chocolates and jams really do keep us young and beautiful! :)

    Happy birthday, Sam. Celebrate well and richly.

    Happy happy birthday! Although, I must ask, if your 40th b-day is today, which also happens to be 6/6/06, are you going to morph into the devil?

    Have a devilishly good day.

    TILLYKKE SAM! I hope you have a GREAT day - who am I kidding, how could a woman like you NOT have a great day! (and I wouldn't have guessed that age either - wauw!):-D

     
  • At 6/6/06 14:06, Blogger Tokyoastrogirl said…

    40 is the new 30 and you make 40 look like the new 25 so don't fret. Just think- you look like a young woman but have the palate and knowledge of someone more experienced which is an intoxicating combination to most people! Happy Birthday!!!

     
  • At 6/6/06 14:14, Blogger debbie said…

    Welcome to 40, Sam! I've got six months on you so I'm something of an expert now, and I can say in all honesty that it doesn't suck. Enjoy the rest of your trip to NYC, and apologies again for missing your get-together!

     
  • At 6/6/06 16:08, Blogger the chocolate lady said…

    Wow, Sam, you are so utterly like your gorgeous mum! Have a delicious and happy birthday, or as we say in Yiddish:

    מיט מזל געיערט זיך

    (Yearify yourself with good fortune!)

    Happy Birthday! Funny how young 40 seems when you get up there, but growing up it seemed ancient, huh? 'Course I wouldn't know... got just a few years left. ;)

    Happy Birthday Sam. You've been in New York at the exact same time my son is visiting on the way to a three month job in the Catskills. His emails home have all been about clubbing and music, despite my food recommendations.

    Here's to many, many more happy years for you, dear Sam! From one forty-year young woman to another!

    I came here on your birthday... but, didn't realise it was your birthday (duh)- you see, i was thinking, no!, she can't be forty! She looks nothing like forty... a lot less maybe.

    Ditto what everyone above said! Wish you the happiest (though belated) of birthdays and welcome to 40 (I just got there myself, and things are going wonderfully so far). Cheers!
