The past few weeks have been busy!!

I turned 41 on June 24th of this year

And I’m not even unhappy about it!

41 feels better than 31 so what’s to cry about??

As my Nana used to always say—health is wealth

And you’re as old as you feel

I used to feel ELDERLY

And now I feel 1000 times better than I have in about 2 decades

So 40’s here we come!

My daughter, Charlotte, also had a birthday and turned 11

She wanted a pedicure for her birthday and I was able to do that WITH her

Something else I can do now that I can FIT IN CHAIRS!!!!!

My best friend, Amanda, gave me all Wonder Woman stuff for my birthday!!

I used to be obsessed with Wonder Woman growing up and she really hooked me up!!

My daughter, Annabelle, gave me a turtle ring for my birthday!!

I now collect turtles and tortoises because my kids really connect my journey

With that story of the “Tortoise and the Hare”

They never quit reminding me that “slowly but surely” I’ll win the race!

I just thought I’d share some pictures with you all of the past few weeks

I hope you’re doing well!!
