45

I suppose if you are in your 20's or 30's that 45 seems pretty old. It even looks old up there in my title for this post, however, it really doesn't FEEL all that old. Until I look in the mirror first thing in the morning, that is! Yes, this weekend marked my 45th birthday! The children blessed me with a great breakfast Saturday morning along with some wonderful gifts for my "research time" in my garden tub. Two of one of my favorite contemporary writer's newest books along with bath bubbles and hot chocolate. Jeff got me a beautiful red Fiesta casserole dish! I love the color! I only have one other piece of Fiesta ware and I have had it for about 13 years--a cobalt blue tea pitcher my mom gave me for another birthday years ago. I also received a beautiful necklace and ear ring set made by a sweet young friend (they match my new casserole dish!) and another set of ear rings that she also made as a gift from her mom! So sweet! I can't wait to wear them.

Kaelan also made a beautiful chocolate cake that we enjoyed last night! Devin thought it turned out better than her cakes do! Oh, the blessings of having daugthers! Especially ones who love to cook!

How many 45 year old women to you know that have a 10 month old baby? Not many, huh? I think having the babies keeps me feeling young. Some days that is!

Happy belated birthday! I didn't realize our birthdays were so close together. I will be 45 Wednesday and Ferrell is 15 today. Time flies. I really don't feel any older than I did ten years ago, but I think I move a little slower :) I guess we just don't have time to feel old ;) Tell Jeff and the kids hi for me. Love ya'll!

Happy belated birthday, Anita!! I love all the sweet things your family did for you for your birthday!! I know you felt very special!!
I turned 46 in May, so I'm officially on the downhill slide towards the big 5-0! I honestly don't mind it one bit!

Embracing the forties with you,
