The Year of the Funky

It's my birthday. I've got some great women in my life who knew that this year, more than ever, I needed a reminder that my forties can be fun and fabulous and, doggone it, I've still got it going on.

An early birthday present from my mom,
for trompin' through break-up in style.



My mother-in-law gave me this colorful bag to hold all my necessities, like a makeup stick to cover up the circles under my eyes and an extra pair of underpants in case I wet myself while laughing. Or sneezing.


My daughters couldn't care less that it's my birthday, but they've given me the best gift of all: a daily reminder that life is full of wonder, joy, and opportunities to learn.




Happy birthday to me . . . and MANY more!



Dinner last night: meatless spaghetti, corn, garlic bread

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, guys! Age is just a state of mind . . . except for my aching lower back . . . that is very real ; p
