Today I've now spent 47 years on this big blue ball we call Earth. In my lifetime I've experienced riding bikes with no helmets, 8 track tapes (with the folded paper underneath to get it to play in the car stereo), vinyl records you bought based off one song on the radio (and if the album cover looked cool) because there was no way to preview the rest of it, getting $3 a week allowance (that I had to Earn) that paid for my trip each Saturday to the skating rink (including skate rental, slice of pizza, pickle, and a suicide to drink-my older peeps will know what that is!😂), no seat belts in cars, racing home from school to an empty house (because I was a latch-key kid) to watch the Marvel Action Hour on tv, only having a few channels on tv to choose from and those all going off at night!, nuclear bomb drills at school because they were convinced Russia would hit that button at any time, lead paint (which thankfully I had the good sense to not eat), people smoking everywhere (including hospitals😱), disco music, bell-bottoms (🙌🏻 which I'm so happy are back in style!), spankings (which I usually deserved), picking up the phone without any clue who was on the other end (perish the thought!), going to the library to research homework, READING books and loving how they smelled....and I've watched so much technology come about, the internet being the biggest deal because without it you wouldn't be reading this!
Through it all I've learned, laughed, loved, lost, but most importantly...I've lived. Rather than lamenting old age creeping up on me, I'm focusing on all the wonderful things I've seen and have yet to experience. I'm thankful to have a wonderful man to share this with, and to have wonderful people like you with which to share a tiny bit of this journey. ❤️#birthdaygirl #fitover40 #vegan #vegangirl #veganmodel #blondehair #70schild #curvygirl #veganbooty #growoldgracefully #ageisjustanumber #imjustgettingstarted
