I don't know that I really feel my age. I feel very lucky actually. I have love in my life and am surrounded by good family and friends. My kids are great and Neil and I are happy 27 years later.  I know weight is much harder to get off these days and I require a little more sleep but otherwise life is good. I live in a wonderful community and love my home. I am so grateful for all I have. Hopefully 44 will be as good to me as 43 was. 


  1. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up either. I love this list and hope you adore being forty four! It's a good number! xx

  2. I love the questions Jen !! It's always fun to come and catch up on your blog. Loved the pumpkin carving entry as well - awesome!
