Today is Your Birthday-Embrace It!

Friday, October 12th is my Birthday!! I will be 46 years old. I can't believe it!!
I mean I honestly don't feel like I'm 46 and I'd like to think I don't look it;)

Taken a few weeks ago

As I've done for the past 15 years or so I am working on 10 goals I have for myself this, my 46th year of life. My list is not finalized yet so I won't share until next week.

My plans for the day include a morning in my studio....puttering around and listening to my favorite tunes. I may journal or just go through my stash....I'll probably enjoy a show during my lunch time {perhaps the new ABC Drama-Nashville} then work at the Art Studio from 2 to 3. My Birthday night Dave and I are going to the movies and enjoying dinner. I may even splurge on a hot fudge/caramel sundae. Jackson and Emma have plans all its just me and Dave. 

Saturday morning I'm teaching a Soul House class at my church then work till 5 at the Art Experience. Sunday is church and rest. I think I have a pretty sweet weekend lined up:)

For whatever reason this Birthday has been a hard one for me...I think the number 46 is so close to 50 and I'm so not ready for that!!! But honestly I've decided that if I can get through all I did during my 45th year then 46 will be a breeze-LOL.  

Here is a canvas I was inspired to create from our Word this week-EMBRACE.

I think this will be my Mantra for this new adventure of being 46:)

What will YOU Embrace??


  1. Happy Birthday to you tomorrow Leslie! Love your canvas, I love the blues and butterflies! I hope you have a great birthday weekend, it sounds like you've got alot of good things planned! :)
