I AM 40!!! New Blogging Journeys

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.

1 Day ’til 40: Lessons Learned on my 400 Days ’til 40 Journey


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 »

2 Days ’til 40: 40 Favorite Posts from My 400 Days ’til 40 Journey

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.

270 Days ’til 40: What is Art???

Lately I have had quite a few interesting conversations with my daughters (ages 8 and 10) about what constitutes art.  This is a tough concept for some adults, let alone children.  It has sparked some very heated and engaging conversations among us.

291 Days ’til 40: Confessions of a Sleepblogger

I have a confession to make. In the middle of the night when my house is quiet and all is well within the confines of nocturnal bliss my dysfunction rages. My nightly predicament manifests most often in that time continuum between 23:30 and midnight. Yes, at that precise moment, I am often a sleepblogger.

301 Days ’til 40: Attitude of Gratitude (And My 100th Post!)

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~ Albert Schweitzer

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John F. Kennedy Read the rest of this entry »
