…today is my birthday!
For once I am actually happy to be getting a year older. Well actually that’s not completely accurate. I am happy to be out of this age and into a new age. I spent the worst 6 months of my life physically and mentally in year 40, so I KNOW 41 is going to be a billion times better!
I remember so long ago in my teens when I thought when you hit your 40’s it basically meant you were done with. Over. Kaput. Might as well strap on the orthopedic shoes, high-waisted, cropped jeans and boxy flowered shirt and get used to being matronly and dumpy. Boy was I ever wrong. Or maybe back then that is what the 40’s looked like? I dunno but whatever that is, I REFUSE to be a part of it. I’m going to be the 90 year old woman wearing cargo shorts and Vans. 😉
I am super thankful that I don’t look my age. Maybe it’s good genes, maybe it’s because I try hard NOT to look middle-aged. But I am also careful not to try and look too young either because that actually just makes you look older. Someone on Twitter recently thought I was in my mid 20’s! Thank you for that. And thanks to all the people at Trader Joe’s who still card me.
Now I am off to think about the ice cream cake I’m having for dessert.
Oh and here’s my birthday mani, which is the recently purchased OPI DS Magic,
Another year older, but also another year wiser.
