44 Years Young

Today is my birthday. I am 44 years old. As a kid I remember counting down the days until my birthday. I LOVED getting older. Now, not so much! However, I try to take it in stride. I exercise, eat well, take my vitamins, etc. The list goes on and on, but it's still hard to watch my body change, to find new wrinkles and dimples, need glasses, and not understand what the hell a GIF or a meme are! Gosh, sometimes my kids make me feel like I am ancient. But at the end of the day, I think its actually my 3 girls that remind me to enjoy the journey and to not sweat the small stuff. Do I still wish I had the body of my 25 year old self? Damn, straight, but I wouldn't want to be 25 again. I am so happy and blessed at 44, and that is what I tell myself when a new wrinkle appears or my jeans from 5 years ago don't fit anymore. Because there is always a solution to everything - just go buy some face cream and a new pair of jeans. Just saying. xo


Rebecca Taylor really did it right this season!! I am loving everything in her collection. This dress is the perfect length, color, and print! I kept the accessories simple: white clutch, white kitten heels, and my favorite Warby Parker shades.
