Today is my birthday. I’m 42.

Forty-two is a good age. Frankly, I wouldn’t want to go back to any other age. I’m not chomping at the bit to hit the next few decades, but I’ll make a point of appreciating those years when I get there. I believe the more we find to celebrate in our lives, the more joy we’ll find in living, no matter what our age.

may you live all the days of your life

A few random highlights of my 42nd year:

  • I celebrated ten years of marriage to the best guy I know.
  • I’m happily anticipating grandmotherhood, just around the corner!
  • I launched a new career as a fitness trainer.
  • I survived Piper’s puppyhood and was rewarded with a loyal sweetheart.
  • I’m stronger physically than I’ve ever been, and maybe mentally, too.
  • I’m getting better at speaking my mind. {I aspire to have Lady Violet’s spunk.}

Let’s celebrate together!
