She's got her mother's rainboot swagger!

Wow!! Thank you so much for all of your birthday love! Your warm wishes truly helped ease me into this year with a full heart. I shared all of your praise with my son, and he drank it up. Actually, his big head had him floating through the weekend. I took a million pictures over the last few days... and some of the images matched my hopes for this new chapter perfectly. I hope to...

find abundance in each day

see magic everywhere

and believe in it

confidently create... with abandon

walk my own path

juggle (life) joyfully

hmmm... so good to write it down. I'm going to come back to this post when I need a little reminder. Happy Monday, friends! Pin It


  1. "confidently create... with abandon"

    that's my favorite

    love your little girl's dress

  2. Happy Bee-lated and welcome to a fabulous generation. Thank you for your heartfelt words the other day. As I was driving home I thought if I had the energy I would detour a bit and party it up with you :)...looks like it would have been just what I needed!

    big xo's!! Karen

  3. the next decade is looking absolutely phenomenal already!!!
    Love each and every word and photograph. I think we might all need to come back here and reflect once in a while.

  4. Some of the most amazing women I've met are in the 50's and older..... seems the older we get the less we care about what others think or do, and more about the substance of loving, living, and creating..... I hope that each new year will bring to you greater fulfillment in all areas of your life.... though looks like you've got a pretty good thing going already! Peace to you now and always....
