Welcome to 50!

Turning 50 is a monumental event. I always imagined that at half a century I would be a wise, strong, balanced, kind, confident and powerful woman who had it all figured out.

As it turns out - I'm the same person I've always been. Getting to 50 is the same as getting to any age of your life. Just trying to be the best person you can be.

Cheers! G

Happy New Year!

There's nothing quite so inspiring as the dawn of a new year.
This year will be the last one I live in my 40s, and I can only hope it will be a strong and productive and happy one.

My New Year's Eve was good - low key and spent with friends.
Today I snuggled in and read my first book of the year - James Lee Burke's Swan Peak. It's the first James Lee Burke that I've read, though it is his latest book. I liked it - but I have to say that I felt as if I was coming in to the show at intermission. Even though I grew up in the south, much of his colloquial language was beyond me and left me feeling like an outsider.

This is exactly why I often start reading new authors at the beginning - or chronologically at the beginning anyway.

What do we all expect for this year?
What are our new year's resolutions?
What do we hope to get from ourselves?

I am still thinking about it all, and will let you know :)
