This week I turned thirty-nine years old.  Very rarely am I on my blog and really don't like to write about myself. This is also our families journal and honestly I wonder what my Mom was like at thirty-nine and so this post is for my children so one day they may "know" the me who is getting very close to forty. 

I decided to make a list of thirty nine facts about me that go beyond my passions of being a mother and wife.

1.  Running is my "coffee" in the morning
2.  Photography has become a huge passion and dream
3.  For the first time in my life I am older than my ballet teacher
4.  Find peace in my garden
5.  Favorite chore- hanging out laundry ( I can hear it now)
6.  Would rather clean than cook
7.  Think a book is the best escape
8.  Passionate about adoption
9.  Hate doing my hair
10. Love blue bell ice cream
11. Summer is my favorite season
12. Beach is my favorite place
13. Always clean house on Thursday
14. Love country music
15. Favorite date- a concert
16. Do not like to drive
17. Knitter
18. Love new technology
19. Dream house would be an old farmhouse
20. Love antiques
21. Takes me forever to use anything new
22.  Love to give homemade gifts
23.  Hiking yes- camping no
24.  Not a big holiday lover
25.  Looking for the "new" "middle" aged me
26.  Love love babies
27.  Think canning is fun
28.  Would not recognize me at 20
29.  Love mason jars
30.  Hate being cold
31.  Love chai tea
32.  Wear jeans daily in winter
33.  Catholic
34.  Like breakfast not lunch
35.  Love to visit "home"
36.  Love having a larger family
37.  Grateful for this past year
38.  Read newspaper daily
39.  Sleep is overrated

So for my kids when they wonder what I was like this is my list that in no way shows how blessed I feel and how my family truly does make me who I am.

the long road

I enjoyed reading about you...we have so many similarities. But one big difference...I am in my early 50's and wishing I was celebrating 39 again.

I was really happy at age 39! I had just had my third child and in a really good place - didn't have grey hair yet, very little wrinkles and was still stick skinny. The 40's hit and everything has been down hill! hahah!!
