How in the world did I get to be 47??

Yep. 47. Today. But in my mind, I'm still that 19 yr. old girl, getting married and starting a life with her sweetheart. Blink, blink and here I am! Oh well, I guess age is just a number, right?


I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas!! We sure did here ~ simple, thoughtful gifts with lots of just enjoying being together. Today I'm going to squeeze in a little fun shopping at Hobby Lobby and maybe a little Jo-Ann Etc.....and maybe some Barnes & Noble ~ and lunch with my sweet friend Dawn! Everyone else will just relax at home and that's the way they like it when I'm hunting and gathering things to create with ~

I have a special project to finish this week for one particular magazine and and article to write for another as well. Are you already getting excited about the new year?? I sure am! I really want to be more productive with my artwork, create more tutorials to add to Lessons from The Nest and I would love to start writing a book! Pretty ambitious, huh?? Well, we'll see :) Maybe if we shoot for the stars it will help us achieve more than we ever thought we could ~



Wishing you a wonderful Friday sweet friends!

xxoo, Dawn

I feel exactly the same way. I will be 49 in February and I can't figure out how it happened! I don't feel any differant than I did before I had my girls and now I'm a grandma! We sound a lot alike you listed three of my favorite places to spend my time.
I hope your 2009 is wonderful.

Pat Winter said...

47 is a great year! I just turned 49 in Sept and I feel the same, how did I become 49? It goes to show age is just a number. I was shopping with a friend and was asked if I had a college ID for a discount,LOL. I certainly don't think I look that young, but it was nice to hear anyway. Enjoy 47!
Smiles,Pat
