~Another Year Older, Another Year Wiser~
Saturday I turned 40-something-ish... hahaha! My hubby brought me a dozen gorgeous peach colored roses, and took me out to "wherever I wanted to go" -- but being a 'not so fancy' girl, I chose Sticky Fingers rib restaurant. I was in the mood for some smokey ribs...yum! I was only able to eat 4 ribs, though, since I'd had the flu last week and was still a little green around the gills! Oy! We shared a peach cobbler for dessert...then we went for a drive. I love quiet birthdays with my most cherished people. I'm not big on people making a production, or God forbid, strangers in a restaurant singing Happy Birthday!
Time really flies by fast, doesn't it? And it's true what our parents and grandparents used to tell us that it just seems to go quicker and quicker the older we get. How can I be this age, yet still feel 15 inside my head? Haha! One quick glance in the mirror jolts me back to the reality of my age though, oh my! Those "smile lines" as my hubby calls them -- but I ask him why, if they're really "smile lines" are they still there when I stop smiling? When push comes to shove, I know I'm not likely to go the Botox route (although I don't fault anyone who does.) I'm afraid I'd be one of the people it messes up with, so I guess I'll just wear my wrinkles, sags, and bags as badges...God knows I've earned every_single_solitary one of them!
Anyway...hope you all have a beautiful Valentine's Day filled with peace, love and chocolate!
