Today is my 54th birthday and if you’ve followed me over these many years you know one of my most guiding life principle is:
When it is your birthday, tell EVERYONE you know!
MY BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY: Getting older is a good thing. And today, to celebrate the anniversary of my planetary arrival I’m going to give away four $25 gift certificates to the Simon Says Stamp store so you can treat yourself to a little something in honor of my birthday. Sound good?
I have a video and card project to share but I also thought this was fun…
When I turned 45, I took this photo:
And this one:
We were in the middle of remodeling our house. I was coming off my first year as an adult-onset runner. I was wearing new jeans and a new vest and was generally feeling great about how I was caring for myself.
Oh, and I was dyeing the SHIT out of my hair, just because I felt like it.
This was nine years ago and now, if you flip that number, you get where I am today: 54. And you know me and a comparison shot… I can’t resist.
Yes, I’m wearing the same clothes which means two things: 1) I have worked really hard to regain my health over the past year-and-a-half, and 2) I really don’t shop much, friends.
Also, that chair on our porch… good Lord! I think it has to go.
IT’S ALL GOOD!
First up, here’s a video wherein I may wax a bit philosophic about why you should celebrate your birthday out loud:
