37

I cannot believe another year has gone by. Or that I am 37 today. I certainly don’t feel like it. Which is probably a good thing, right? Come to think of it, I cannot believe that I have 2 kids who are 9 and 6.

I have never put a picture of myself on this space. Which Todd pointed out to me a few weeks ago. Come to think of it, there aren’t many pictures of me around the house period. Is that because I am the one that is usually taking the pictures?

But, in honor of today, here’s a picture:




Do you know how hard it is to get a good picture of yourself? Especially me, who cannot be outside without sunglasses. After having Lasik surgery 8 years ago, the light just kills my eyes.




But there you go.



Wait - here's a better one, and this is how I ALWAYS look if I am outside. Which I normally am.

Happy Birthday friend. It's so good to see a face. Hope you have a wonderful day and a super weekend.

When I was 37, several years ago, I was pregnant with Elizabeth; so 37 was a memorable year for me.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday fellow June-baby! Great photo! I think one of the first 'real' pictures of me on my site was for my birthday just 10 days ago.
I hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday Pretty Girl!!! You should take more pics of yourself! I usually try to make sure I get a photo of me and my kids on their birthdays. I can't believe you're only 37!!! Lucky you!

Happy, happy birthday, Kris! And thank you sooooo much for sharing a picture of you! You're exactly how I imagined with a beautiful smile and happy, kind eyes! Fantastic! You're 37 years young and going strong. I know you'll enjoy every moment of your days, inside or outside, doing what you love and know.

Happy Birthday to a farm friend from across the nation but close in blogdom ;)! I think your photos look smashing and I know what you mean about always being the one taking the picture.

May your year be blessed!

Sorry I missed your birthday: I didn't get to read yesterday. But thanks for the picture, it is so much easier when you can picture the person you are communicating with.

Happy happy birthday!! I hoped you had a great weekend. Thanks for the great picture of you. We have the same problem with the pictures, it is mostly dogs, flowers and quilts, no people...

Happy belated birthday to you, my friend! Love the pic! And, yes I can understand how you are struggling with age and what all has transpired. I turned 35 in April and found myself thinking the same stuff. Even got a little choked up yesterday as I was thinking about how fast time is flying past me.
