OMG - I am 50 is about my preppy journey into my next decade. I can't believe that I have left my 40's, when I still feel 25 inside. Experience the daily joys, laughter and tears as I face teenagers, college students, second husbands, friendships, aging parents, changing careers, body changes, empty nest and so much more. Join me on my journey - "OMG - I am 50" - heck it is better than the alternative ;-)
Eight years ago today I married my best friend and the love of my life!
Decades we were apart, with fate guiding our paths back together.
Over these 8 years we have blended a beautiful family and we are blessed.
As we continue growing together I hope we will always burst out in laughter, end each disagreement with a hug, debate politics, go for evening drives, visit the coasts during each season, dance in the grocery store aisles (when no one is looking), and stay madly in love with each other.
As "Baron" and I start to think of places to retire, I am starting to feel sentimental about our home. My brother purchased these cookie jars from Emerald Forest Pottery many years ago and I am contemplating purchasing one for our current home.
They are only $89.00 and they are done with such talent and creativity! Check out their website - www.emeraldforestpottery.com . Tell them I sent you ;-) Happy shopping, they offer such a neat selection of products!
I hope you enjoy a wonderful Valentine's Day! If you are with the one you love embrace them tightly. If you find yourself alone on this day - than know something special is coming your way. As I told my single daughter today - "He is enroute, he just hasn't arrived yet. In the mean time, celebrate you!"
This is an invitation to live more deliberately, to notice what is already unfolding in your life daily, and to sneak in the spontaneous and out of the ordinary whenever possible!
My mother has been in the hospital so many times over the last six months. Each time the nursing staff and even a few of the doctors have mentioned her beautiful skin. My mother is 88, she will turn 89 in May. Mother has always sworn by Merle Norman cosmetics. I, along with my sisters, have turned our noses up at Merle Norman cosmetics. Each of us having our more expensive, favorite brands. Well, after all the attention from the medical community about Moms skin, which is flawless, I have decided to give it another look. If my skin looks as good as Moms I will be so blessed! Merle Norman store here I come!
So I have decided or rather my eyes and opthamologist have decided that I need new glasses. What a fun way to kick off the new year - new glasses- new look. I love Warby Parker glasses so I have ordered some for a free 5 day home try on. I really want to try the "geek chic" look. I need glasses for reading and for long distances. What do you think of this pair?
These are the HUXLEY model in tortoise shell. I sure hope I love them this much when they arrive in 2 days! If you haven't tried Warby Parker - check them out at www.warbyparker.com. Such fun! Enjoy this wonderful day!
The new year has started. Running with wild abandon into it or kicking and screaming to stay - 2013 has begun. I have decided to make this the best year that I can. Personally, I was happy to see 2012 end. In this new year, I am going to live deliberately, take notice of the things that continue to unfold in my life daily, and sneak in the spontaneous whenever I can!
This morning after taking my husband to the airport for an early flight, and seeing daughter #1 off to work I decided it was time to start! I did my usual stretches as I put the teapot on to heat. I drank a huge glass of ice water (can't have too much H2O) and then I did something different. I got out my good china for my breakfasts. I sat my table setting just like I was having company. I softly played Andre Bocelli and read from my new book.
A Year Of Little Things
There were fantastic suggestions in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed starting my day in such a wonderful way! Recently, a miserable person said I was a "Pollyanna". Hhhhhmmmm. I doubt that was a compliment (in her mind) but if trying to see "the glass half full instead of half empty" makes me deserving of the title than I will wear it with pride!
The new year has begun and it's up to each of us to make the best of it! What are your plans to make this a wonderful year? I hope you have a great day!
