The big 5-0

and so somehow, just like that this number now applies to me. It is absolutely surreal. and yet, there it is. I’m fine with it, actually. It’s just a bizarro number that once was old and now……not so much!

I do not have AirPods. I can barely keep regular pods in my ears without forgetting they are there and then swatting them away like a bug. At least these have strings so I can chase them down when I do that!

If there was anything that I could wish for or want for my 50th birthday (if I keep saying it, maybe it will sink in), it is for peace and happiness in where I am. Although my life is far from perfect, I am absolutely at peace with where I am. I have an awesome husband, 4 amazing kids, incredible family and friends. I am loved. So much peace in that. So much joy. To be loved.

It is an absolute travesty that you can’t smell these

There was no surprise party full of friends and family (thank you very little, Coronavirus). But my entire day/weekend was FULL of friends and family. Texts, calls, cards, lunch, flowers, chocolate (SOOOOO much chocolate), dinner, cake. So good. And who knew? At 50 it is the simplest things that bring me so much joy—what a shame it took so long to figure that out, but I plan to keep embracing it.

Dear Publix bakery,
I love you.

    LOVE the post! Happy birthday! So sorry I wasn’t able to spend it with you – your sweet daughter helped tremendously, though =).

    Sorry I was frazzled when you called – a bit of a chaotic moment… miss you! Happy 50th!!
