Another year older....I don't know about wiser :)


Yep. It's true....today's the day!!
Thank you so much Marcie for your sweet birthday wish!!
I can't EVEN believe it, but I'm 48 years old today ~
and so very blessed!!!

Blessed with my precious family, five sons and a husband that are so wonderful to me, a daughter in law that I love and precious granddaughter that I love more than breath. And on top of it all, I'm blessed with so many amazing friends that fill my heart to overflowing!!!

So instead of thinking of how my body is changing or that my face is wrinkling by the day or how my turkey neck has a life of it's own....I would rather think of my blessings today and how thankful I am for each and every one!!!



Now I'm off to go shopping and spend my Christmas money!!!
Hugs and love to you all,
Dawn

Happy Birthday, Dawn! I hope you enjoy your day! I turned 46 back in October and just don't feel it, so I refuse to acknowledge that number. In my head I'm still the young woman I was and I think I always will be!
