Blogging has been challenging for me at times. I have never been one to "toot my own horn", so to speak or reveal too much personal information. I think I have ever only posted a single picture of myself on this blog. I would much rather post pictures like the one above of my own living room as well as other interiors I find inspirational.
But, here I am today, at 43!
Yep, it's my birthday tomorrow. I really do gulp when I say I am turning 43!
Do I feel 43? Hell no!
Do I look 43? I would like to think not, but those lines around my eyes give me away!
Am I wiser at 43? Yes!
Do I sweat the "small stuff" like I used to ? NO WAY, it's a waste of time.
Am I comfortable "in my own skin"? Absolutely!
For the most part, I am content. Sure, I have 10 pounds to lose, second career ambitions, travel dreams, relationships and friendships that I wish to deepen etc...but for the most part 43 feels pretty darn good.
One of my favorite stores, Anthropologie sends a 15% off card to their loyal customers (which I happen to be!)for their birthday. Today I visited my Anthro store to stock up on some new spring clothes and put that discount card to good use.
Because I feel fortunate to have so many great women readers of my blog - and to celebrate all of YOU on my birthday, I also picked up this adorable salt/pepper/mustard set from Anthro and decided to host a total improptou giveaway!
Rules are as follows:
First, leave me a comment! I would love to hear how you feel about growing older and if you are more content now than when you were "younger".
Second, I will enter your name twice if you are a follower or become a follower of my blog!
Third, I will enter you a third time if you post about my little ol' birthday giveaway on your blog!
The giveaway will end on Sunday and winner will be announced on Monday! Good luck!
