Give up? All these assorted characters were born the same year as moi!

Interesting food for thought, eh? What do we learn by mulling over this list?

My observations: Entertaining, well-accessorized, inspirational, independent, provocative, great with eye-liner…if I have achieved any of this in my 45 years on this planet, it’s not bad. Hopefully, I’ve done as much and more and I vow to continue my “What About Bob?” baby steps progress toward a better me in the second half of my life.

At least I started my day with a chocolate & gelato breakfast, watched gorgeous snow fall, had a champagne lunch, spent it in jammies with my boys on the couch and the Grinch on the tube. Ended with a divinely decadent dinner, chocolate souffle dessert and port. (I’ll worry about the cholesterol tomorrow.)

And remember, I’m not 4o-something, I’m “double-legal” – sounds more fun, doesn’t it? Thanks Catherine!

And many thanks to everyone who made this day, and this year, so wonderful. I am humbled and enriched by all the amazing people in my life.

Peace to everyone in my, oops I mean, the new year!
