Feeling old.....

I turned 38 today.......hard to believe how fast time has flown by. Hard to believe I am a mother to a 14 and 12 year old. Hard to believe I've lived in the same house for 17 years. Hard to believe I've been married for 16, to my high school sweetheart. All of it..........has sped by me so very fast. I sure wish life could slow down just a tiny bit....... : )

I found this picture of me in kindergarten. It made me sort of melancholy to see it. I can still remember kindergarten. The cubbies, the smell of crayons, the set up of my classroom. It seems like a lifetime ago. 1976. The 70's.......Dippity Do, pigtails, plaid ruffles, bell bottoms, the BeeGees, disco.........*sigh* What a crazy I will be when I am in my 60's or 70's huh?

I used Noel Mignon's newest kit called Core Curriculum. (It is sold out.....but don't worry cuz her Halloween kit called 31st is coming out soon and Noel is taking pre-orders. Click HERE if you'd like to reserve one! It is simply divine!!!)

Well off to work I go......(Ironic that I am heading off to school.......)
Have a wonderful Thursday! Hope all is well with you!

Adorable LO, Michele! And Happy Birthday! I've been feeling the speed of life lately, too--but I think from what you write that we both enjoy every second (well, some aren't so very fun....!) Now enjoy every second of your birthday, even if you are at school! Thanks for the lovely inspiration!

Well Michele, you are still very young. I wish I was 38 again. Your picture when you were young looks just like you. What a lovely layout. I did one this year on turning 47. It was fun to do. Went into a photo booth and took some kooky pics to add to it. Enjoy your day. Happy Birthday.
Hugs xx
