    I will always see myself as 16, until I look in the mirror. Aging, it’s a strange feeling.

      So true! I’ll be 40 in a few days. I started noticing some white hair appearing along my hairline and in my sideburns. I’m accepting it. But I have to admit I used to think 40 was kind of old, my opinion is changing, lol!

        I’ll be 40 in the spring. Ugh. Yes, embrace it. My husband is 42..he has gotten more and more grey. I’m so glad 40s the new 30!! Let’s hang on to that, shall we? πŸ™‚

    wow, up close and personal! Love the specs. I am going on a life drawing / painting day tomorrow, always was c**p at life drawing. Excited but trepidatory at the same time. Mostly friends going, tho, so thats fine. You have a great, simple, quirky style – I like it!
