Dear 42

Dear 42, I’m not sure where to start. I dare say, you have been the most pivotal year yet. You and I rode quite the roller coaster. Here’s just a few of the highlights.

42 taught me that not everyone is in my corner, and that’s ok. I’m a lot, and I mean that in the best way possible. I love hard, and don’t do subtle.
The Florida vacation that gave us the time we needed back. Spouse only vacations are a yearly must. Seriously the best thing you can do for your marriage is to put each other first. My kids benefit from watching us. They watch how we fight, and they watch how we love. They watch how we challenge each other and they watch how we support each other.
This solo spring break trip revealed my hidden strength. I am very proud of myself. Not saying I’d do it again anytime soon, but my kids are the bomb. Looking back I have no idea how I didn’t have multiple anxiety attacks. So many miles but so many memories.
I did a boudoir photo shoot and fell in love. I fell in love with myself as a person, and my body. I’ve never experienced this level of comfort. It was much needed for myself, and my marriage. A sexy, confident, strong, happy wife, is isn’t a bad thing to be.
Finally after years of putting it off I had a hysterectomy. I am so glad I took the leap and got this over with. If you are considering having one hit me up with questions. I’ve probably asked them all.

“My God are you naked?”
“Mom, just grab your coffee and don’t worry about it”

Trying like hell to lay low. I over did it the second week and now I’m playing catch up. I’m getting real tired of being tired. I’m thinking winter may have been a better time to lay low for 6-8 weeks.
I finally went to my first official writers retreat. It’s a huge step for me to acknowledge that I am in fact a writer. I’m very excited to see the growth that happens with that in the upcoming year.
Spent my last night being 42 kicking his ass at Farkle
