Thanks for stopping by my new blog home! I’m still getting used to things over here, so it will take me a bit of time to get up to speed. But I am loving this new space!
Thank you so much to Donna at Wicked Simple Marketing! She designed this new blog and was wonderful to work with. All the random stuff that I showed her and we spoke about, she has brought to life.
The plan in my head was to have the perfect introductory post all wrapped up and ready to go last night at the stroke of midnight. But my time on the planet has shown me that sometimes you just have to go with the flow. That’s what I’m doing today.
I just finished baking my birthday cake, which is an adapted version of these strawberry cupcakes. I put blueberries and shredded coconut on top.
As I enter this new fifth decade, I’ve found some inspiration from a few recent news articles.
There are many stars turning 50 this year. Doesn’t Sandra Bullock look amazing?! 51 ladies shared some amazing words of wisdom. I really like these three quotes below.
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” ~ Nora Ephron
“I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life — and I became that woman.” ~ Diane Von Furstenberg
“If you’re creating anything at all, it’s really dangerous to care about what people think.” ~ Kristen Wiig
I love the model Cindy Joseph. She wasn’t discovered until she was 49 and is still going strong at 63 years old! When she was asked to give advice to women who want to be happy, healthy and beautiful, she gave some great advice. It’s now another favorite quote.
“Live your life according to you and what gives you pleasure. That way you will trust your intuition, follow your dreams, and take care of your body and spirit.” ~ Cindy Joseph
Her words are sounding pretty good to me!
