5 things...

Okay, I'm going to try to remain positive as I write this. Because, I just got up to get another cup of coffee and looked out my window. It's snowing so hard, I can't see the playset in the back. The yard is quickly being covered by more snow. The piles from the winter haven't even melted yet. So...let's go on!
1. One of my Lenten goals was to try to remain more positive. I'm trying and I see a vast difference around the house. It takes a lot from deep inside some days, but I'm trying to lead by example.
2. I'm also learning to love my lines a bit more. They are coming fast and furious now and I need to remind myself of all the fun and living that got me here. The top photo is "touched" up to soften the lines a bit. Again, more practice with Photoshop Elements.
3. This is totally untouched, without makeup and I'm wondering if I even combed my hair on this day. Not sure how much longer I can go with growing my hair out. It's the longest it has been since my early 20's.
4. We are into single digits on our countdown to vacation. Not sure how we will be able to wait much longer. Ryan is all packed and could leave tomorrow!
5. I've got to go hit the treadmill. If I'm going to eat all that yummy food on vacation, I've got to make room for it now!
Have a good day and I sure hope it's not snowing in your neck of the woods!

You look fabulous just as natural as can be. I too, look in the mirror and think...who is that? Where did those lines come from. I turn 55 in a few weeks...where did the time go. Northern California finally has sun. So doing some needed gardening. The sun melts my heart. Stay positive and enjoy.

You look beautiful! and loving ourselves is where it's at - this morning, as i was getting dressed, my daughter asked my why my legs were so 'jiggly' and I told her that they weren't that bad but that I sure could use more time on that treadmill! Enjoy your vacation! we're off for a few days of sun tomorrow.

We're down to rain, finally... but it's only been four days since the last snow storm, so I'm not going to hold my breath that it's gone, either... But I'm hopeful. You look gorgeous! I wish I looked that good without makeup... or even with it, for that matter!

Lines? I do not see any lines! You look fabulous Jane! You are so good about your Lenten promise, I failed at mine early on....
Snow?? Wow, I think everyone needs some spring, we keep getting rain.
I love the anticipation of a family vacation. Hope you have a fun and safe trip.

I'm not good at SPs, but I do think they are such a good thing to do. I think they take a lot of courage. So bravo! (and you look beautiful)
