The FB likes have subsided, texts are few and I have heard from all my besties via phone and even had 2 serenade me. I am officially headed toward the next milestone birthday, seems like only yesterday I was celebrating my 40th. My actual birthday was business as usual, driving a 100 plus miles, taking […]

Breaking the Speed Limit- 55

July 27th, 2014 (6 Comments)

Another birthday – I am 55 years-old today…it feels weird saying that, and I know some ladies still like to treat age like a mystery, but my thought is aging is a part of living and should be celebrated instead of hidden. I feel good and I’m at peace with self. I look in the […]

25 years ago I said “I Do” to my soulmate for life.

Waxing the Thing…

July 21st, 2014 (2 Comments)

Hmmmm…To wax or not to wax? I’ve been waxing for over 10 years, perhaps I should have opted for laser hair removal, but something about the permanent nature, did not agree with me- and I’m a chicken. I can’t help but to think about peeps I see at the beach with faded droopy tats from […]

Turn the HAPPY Dial up to MAX!

July 18th, 2014 (8 Comments)

I don’t like to keep putting this kind of info into the universe, but I feel like this is one of those messages that come out of nowhere when you are watching a really good show and the screen goes blank – “we interrupt this program etc….”. Yesterday I was still numb, today my regular […]

So needless to say I was and am exhausted, but wanted to share a few tidbits. Will be incorporating a few of these routines “12 quiet rituals of […]

Rejection is the New Acceptance…

July 15th, 2014 (3 Comments)

This took me a long time to learn and receive. Rejection whether professional, from a friend, a club, a lover, a client, or any type of relationship can be painful, at the time it is difficult to be open to see what is “around the corner”. I believe that some things or persons are only […]

Let’s Get Married…

July 14th, 2014 (No Comments)

Summer would not be complete without at least one wedding invitation. I’m at an age where we are now receiving invites from our friends for their children’s nuptials. It’s funny how when I was “younger” I was a bridesmaid in quite a few weddings, and then there was a period of attending the 2 time/3 […]
