  1. Allison, I need a power drill and I'm reasonably set. I don't know that I have a juicy past or enough money to move out if I had to but I feel pretty good about myself and I guess that's the important thing. You are truely blessed in many ways and should feel good about yourself. A loving Mum, a gifted writer, family that supports you , friends, real and "virtual" who love you, a brocante little home to putter in and remake as your own as you evolve and grow… the list goes on and on. No one is perfect, how boring that would be! Enjoy who you are in the here and now and go get those screwdrivers! Amanda

  3. Love this on so many levels that I can't begin to explain. Why is it us girls can always tell exactly who we aren't and forget who we are? I have regrets as I near 40 as well, just a different set. While lurk more than comment, I see you as a motivated and successful mum. Have no regrets. Maybe that needs to be pasted on the refrigerator. =)

  4. I turned 40 last September i wish i had had this to ponder on in the run up to my Birthday, would have helped so much. You never fail to inspire me, thanks ….. Lynn

  5. Searched endless pages (not really) of Brocante in order to find this entry again! I think it should become a semi-regular post like puttery treats or seasonal scrubs, loved it 🙂

    1. Good idea Beth! Perhaps I’ll re-issue annually a month before my birthday as a kind of checklist to keep us all on track!x
