Happy birthday to me

It’s birthday week and so I’ve been busy celebrating and haven’t had a chance to post much here. However, upon seeing this below, I just had to pop in to celebrate as a very proud over-40’er.

Just when you start to worry about getting old, about the years just flying by, the new wrinkles, and new aches & pains, the universe hands you a gift.

Over 40 celebrities that are not only aging beautifully but gracing the covers of big magazines and OUTSELLING their 20 and 30-something, botox-injected, face-lifted, boob-enhanced, and lipo-sucked celebrity sistahs.

Take that you young punks!!

Julia Roberts, Elle Magazine, September 2010:

“I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy and when I’m confounded. Your face tells a story and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office.” — Julia Roberts

(Amen girlfriend)

This 43 year old is enjoying this beautiful, crazy, wrinkled, lumpy and bumpy ride, and God-willing, will continue to for many more years to come.

  1. Someone once said don’t count the years in your life but count the life in your years. We all struggle with the number at times (as I did this morning, musing that someone under 40 must have invented the magnifying mirror) but overall, we are who we are because of the many miles we’ve traveled on this road we call “Life”. Just ever thankful I get to make the journey with you!
