So in case you haven’t heard my birthday was Friday and I celebrated turning 50 years old!!! I’m excited yet a little freaked out with the knowledge that I have crossed over the threshold of my 40′s and am firmly entrenched into middle age. I am really beginning to understand as well as acknowledge that age truly is a number and it’s all in how you feel. I feel great, I do not intend on transforming into some different person now that I am 50 just because society has a preconceived notion of who and what a 50 year old should look like. I like me and who I’m becoming and I plan on continuing the course that is set before me. I am so far from where I want to be but I am light years away from who I was. Every day I spent alone time examining how I can be the best me, I will not stop until I have achieved that.
A few months ago while showering (don’t you have just the best conversations with yourself in the shower?) it came to me that I wanted to wear a tutu for my birthday outfit. I actually planned to purchase one but since I forgot what I had originally decided to wear and time go away from me quickly, I had no time to order one. What’s a girl to do? Enter Rocquelle of Consider Me Lovely and her brilliant tutorial!. I knew that she had made a gorgeous tutu and inspired many others to follow suit, so I thought how hard could it be? Well it was not as easy as it appeared but not as hard as I thought and in 3 days I had produced a beautiful poof of a skirt.
I had big plans for Saturday evening and fully intended to wear my tutu proudly however in the spirit of full disclosure and transparency, I will reveal that I did not wear it longer than a hour. Someone who will remain
nameless my husband refused to be seen with me wearing such an attention grabbing item. Why don’t he know that I am not scared to be seen and in fact dress for that fact?? But since I was in such a charitable mood, I gave in and put on something more sedate. I WILL wear my tutu proudly the next time I find a suitable occasion to do so.
Thank you for the birthday wishes that I have received over the past few days, I feel loved and cherished by your kindness!
