Four Decades.

Well, it's official. I'm 40 years old.
I keep thinking that I should be more bummed about entering a new decade but the truth is that I'm feeling ok about turning 40...for now anyways. There are definitely some new wrinkles, more than a few gray hairs and that stubborn muffin top that has been hanging around since I gave birth...but all around I feel pretty damn good. I think throwing myself a poofy pink Prom party and getting a big new tattoo is helping with the transition!

I plan on spending my actual birthday (Today) doing all the things I love to do...
*Thrift Shopping at The Bins and Red, White + Blue
*Lunch at Nicholas'
*A performance at my son's school
*Dinner and cocktails at The Farm Cafe
What a perfect day!


Ahh, those were the days when life was all about my favorite purple poncho and Toughskins jeans and running around with a stick was great fun! I think I'm about 7 or 8 in this classic photo.
