1. Oh man do I relate. The last few years have been haaaaaaard on my face and my body. I knew motherhood would change my world but I didn’t know I’d age 5 years in just the newborn phase alone!

  2. I flip-flop back and forth about how I feel about aging, too. I want to embrace the changes as they (slowly) happen, and a lot of the time do, but sometimes the lines or the fact that I now need glasses gets me a little bit down. I want to love myself no matter my age or stage and I want my children to do the same for themselves! ^_^

    • It’s so tough, isn’t it?! I certainly don’t plan on giving up on my perceived “final years of youth”, but I definitely need to work on the concept of embracing the years as they slowly drag down all my (previously) perky bits. 😉 Thanks so much for the comment Valerie, and welcome to the blog! 🙂

  3. You, my dear, look very young to me (and way too young to have a highschooler? Is that what I read in this post??) I’m going to be 48 next month, and there are things I love about being in my late 40s and things I hate about it. Love: feeling more wise, more settled, more confident, more resigned, less dramatic, less afraid, less unsure. Hate: all the minor health problems that plague me with age no matter how hard I work on my health, the sagging skin (especially neck and legs,) the fear of becoming frail and dependent on others… All I know is, I’m thankful for my life’s journey, but when it comes to visibly aging, I am NOT going down without a fight. A multitude of face creams and serums, regular facials, yoga, vegan eating, and hair coloring are my BFFs at this stage in the game. 🙂

    • Oh man, your comment made me smile. You look amazing! Bright and joyful and externally lovely also. Lucky duck!

      My son isn’t a high schooler yet, but it’s just around the corner and I’m not ready. Everything needs to slow down for a bit, please?!
