50 And Fabulous

Turning 50 is a milestone, but I don't plan on using it as an excuse to slow down in life. My children are older, my health is improving and I am going to use this time and energy I have to not act my age. I've accepted the lines on my face and so what that a few places are a little softer than what they were when I was 25. I will wear my laugh lines and stretch marks with pride.

My dad used to say, "Age is a state of mind." I remember watching him play football on a beach near Camp Lejeune with a couple young marines when he was in his 70's. The next day, he received a nice massage from my mom.

I'm embracing this second anniversary of my 25th birthday and vow to live life to the fullest. I will be romantic, passionate, silly, and adventurous.

Come on ladies my age...let your inner diva shine. Who's with me?

No-Stress Valentines

Valentine gifts don't have to be difficult to be romantic. Don't get stressed about buying that perfect gift. Simply pay attention to what your honey enjoys. A fancy Valentine box of chocolates or a big bag of Reese's? A dinner out or one made together? A weekend away or a night in snuggled under a blanket watching a movie? 

Many jewelry stores offer really good deals for the holiday. Don't forget to check local hardware ads for those special gifts for him. 

Always remember, love should be celebrated every day not just Feb. 14.
