my darling husband brought me tea in bed this morning and a gift.
Aging and nudging 60 doesn't feel at all threatening.
I am embracing 59...and have a whole year to get used to the idea!
We had a Golden for 13 years named Rufus and we love and miss him so much that when it comes to cards,
we try to find one with a Golden on the front. Their sweet faces just convey so much Love!
Boxes from Wilson's usually mean that inside there is a wee bit of luxury.
Mr. HB surprised and spoiled me with a wonderful classic scarf which I will be wearing for many years to come.
Sumptuous, so soft and cozy!
Thank you honey.
The cats are joining in on the fun too!
I wonder if they'd welcome a Golden retriever into their domain?
OOTD ~ Birthday style
I wore it with my grey Lord and Taylor cashmere V neck long cardigan
white Coldwater Creek tank top
g21 dark skinny jeans
Mee Too black ballet shoes
Chillax walking coat
Mom and I went out for a walk along the Esplanade and then lunched at our favourite spot, Pure Vanilla.
She gave me some money and directed me to drive to W and J Wilson's on Newport Avenue.
(their other location where my husband shops is on Government Street)
I spied this yummy sunny yellow light weight quilted jacket (on sale) which
I think will be great for walking and super cozy for boating.
It looks huge in this picture but it is only a size 10.
Puffy quilted coats do add volume but they make up for it in comfort and warmth.
It reminds me of a beautiful bright green Boden jacket that Duchesse recently purchased.
My BFF and her husband gave me a wonderful floral scarf which I love!
A bar of triple milled fragrant French soap and a loofah scrubber.
My BFF is planning a trip to Paris in late spring of 2015 to meet up with her husband while he is on a tour with his regiment.
It looks like she and I may be flying over together to spend a week in Paris before she joins up with him.
Perhaps my friends John and Cheryl will be in Auvilar and I can take the train down and stay with them for a few days before flying home.
I feel so optimistic and excited tonight...I may not sleep a wink :-))
We'll need to arrange to rent an apartment in Paris, plan our itinerary and I need to save a big chunk of money to add to the current balance in my "mad money" account.
What an exciting day and evening it has been.
The test drive on the three mascara's has been finished...
Great Lash is the winner.
The brush deposits a small amount of product on the brush which does not clump.
I like the natural look of each individual lash being darker and defined yet not clumped together.
I may try some other mascara's in the future but for the time being this basic cheap drugstore find is easy on the budget and seems to deliver on it's promise.
Which is all I can ask.
"The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it.
Even if you're wrinkled."
