Me. Me. ME!

Today is the big 4-0 day! Yep, today’s my birthday and I’ve been up since 5 a.m. and ready for a nap. I seem to recall, with my failing memory, that it’s what my grandparents did.

Anyway, I treated myself to a lovely pop-back last week. Every time this showed up on the J Crew website, I could not add it to my cart. Then, last Saturday morning, it added. I clickety-clicked as fast as I could and voila! Happy Birthday to me!
And here are a few more to keep you entertain.

Oooh, 2nd swimsuit shot you’ve ever seen of me.
Does anyone remember when these glasses/props were popular?

    Happy Birthday pretty lady! I'm on "this" side of 40, and I have to say, the odd gray hair and smile lines are more than offset by the gain in self-awareness and confidence! Enjoy your new status!!
