Project 365: Day 224 -- It's the 7th Anniversary of My 35th Birthday...

Getting old sucks. Unless you consider the alternative. But today is my 42nd birthday, or the 7th anniversary of my 35th birthday...I don't like saying I am in my 40's. It just sounds so...middle-aged.

So today, I went shopping. I'm going to Colorado this weekend for a fun weekend with my girlfriends, who are all photographers. So I thought I might buy something new to wear. I went to my favorite store, Coldwater Creek, and tried on a dressing room full of stuff. I narrowed it down to a few basic pieces, and then had to add this fantastic jacket that I just couldn't pass up. With all the discounts and coupons I've received in the mail, I knocked my total down to almost half--happy birthday to me!

Then Kelly took me out to dinner at Mack & Kate's, a great little restaurant right here in Kingston Springs. It's great when we want a nice meal with wine and don't want to drive all the way into Nashville. I had a wonderful salmon dish with gnocchi, crab cake, and a flourless chocolate torte. It was a pretty nice birthday for being in my 40's...

  1. Hey... It's my 7th anniversary of my 35th birthday, too... Sounds way better than 42! :)

    Looks like you celebrated in style.
