Birthday Girl...

Guess who's birthday it is today?


Mine - eeeeek!! (don't you just love my turtle neck sweater and top knot?)

No grizzling here about the onset of grey hair and wrinkles - I'm just totally thankful for life.  So many people don't even make it to my age, so I am loving every moment of it (and it's always a good thing to realise each year on your birthday, that you will never ever look this young again, so make the most of it!  Even when I'm 80 I'm going to look better than when I'm 90 - ha!).

This next year is going to be full of new and exciting adventures, not only including a new job, our last baby off to school and our oldest entering high school, but also a new season in our role in our church.  I'm excited, nervous and ever so thankful for my amazingly awesome husband, family, friends and most of all God!!

Love you guys!!

p.s. thanks Mum and Dad for being the best parents ever (even if you dressed me in Ernie-like clothes).

  24. Yay happy birthday!! I think we can all muster up a stunning mixed orange, brown, tan & yellow ensemble - i was born in 1975 & boy did fashion have a moment in poo tones back then.
    I agree, we're lucky to be any age, i tell my children that too. My eldest is in year 8 next year & my 4th baby year 3, that came around really fast. I cheated with twins in the middle, thus my quick succession of children through school, they're in year 5 next year & will be turning 11, now that was fast.
    My husband just turned 40 & just knowing he'll always be 4 years older than me keeps me feeling young. Love Posie
