Today I am 40

The skies are blue and the birds are chirping and I am turning 40 and making no apologies for it. I can see how some might look at this as a negative but in my eyes, I couldn't be more please with my life.

Make no mistake, I'm not saying that it's not without its trials, but i like to 
take times like these to reflect on what I'm thankful for. A husband that
has loved me for the past 20 years, 2 beautiful girls and a good

And even tho I don't celebrate my birthday in the traditional sense, I have 
taken it easy on myself today.  I got myself some good old movies, got my favorite lunch and brought it home and snuggled in for some time to myself,

As I get older I have learned to take better care of myself so I can be a better wife and mother to everyone. I also look to other woman of a certain age in the blogging community that continue to
amaze me with their fearless style and attitude.
You know who you are citizen rosebud & Vix.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend 
As i know i will.
