I love it when teachers are excited to welcome their students back to school!
Hello blogging world.
First of all, some of you asked to see my face. Being that my blog is over, I feel that I can now honor that request – here you go! (I was a bit younger than 40 in this photo, but those who know me will testify that I have not changed a bit!)
This is my encore post. I am now already 40, which means that my 400 days ’til 40 blogging journey is officially over. This also means that this blog has run its course. As mentioned yesterday – it is bitter-sweet, as I enjoyed the journey immensely. This particular blog has to end, but I do have new ones on the horizon. Stay subscribed here and in the future weeks/ months I will post a note directing you to my new blogging adventures. Read the rest of this entry »
This is IT – my 400th post! I have now officially blogged the 400 days ’til my 40th birthday – AND I am still here to tell about it! Tomorrow is the day that inspired this 400 day writing journey. It is hard for me to believe that the time has passed as quickly as it has. Was it really 400 days ago that, on a whim, I thought it would be fun to blog the 400 days before I turned 40? (What on earth WAS I thinking?!?) It seems like only yesterday……… they do say that time starts to slip away faster as we age…. Read the rest of this entry »
I must say that it was much easier to choose 40 photos than to choose 40 posts! One of the fun things about this particular journey is that I allowed myself to write (or post photos) about whatever I felt on any particular day. As a result, I have a wide array of followers who each connect in different ways to what I write – this has been amazing. I imagine that in the future, as I become a bit more focused, I may have a less diverse group of readers, though I hope not!
Here is my top 40 list of posts, hopefully as eclectic as my readers are. Some I chose because of the importance of the content, some because they make me laugh (yes, I realize that I have a weird sense of humor that others do not always appreciate) and some because I like the way the words flow.

As my 400 days ’til 40 blogging journey is almost to an end, I wanted to dedicate this post to my top 40 favorite photos from the journey. Blogging each day also meant taking many original photos so that I could include an image with each post. I have never used my camera as much as I have this year! I hope you enjoy!
Well, when you get old senility sets in first, right? Apparently as I run this final stretch towards 40 it is all going downhill!!! Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and my partner and I had a wonderful dinner in a nice restaurant, something we do not normally do because we are very budget conscious. It was such a lovely experience and I am so glad we went out. We had a delicious meal and the atmosphere was pleasant and there were no kids – we were in heaven.
Yet, as I looked around the restaurant, something saddened me. I realized that many people, even on a special occasion like Valentine’s Day, struggle with whether to go for a diet dinner or a delicious delicacy. Where is the balance in the equation?
