I just recently had my 29th Birthday on December 20th, 2010. I like to think of age as a state of mind. That being said, you are only as old as you feel...and I do not feel 29. Being a Christmas Baby (aka being born super close to Christmas), I tend to hold my Birthday to a higher standard than most and actually look forward to it coming instead of not wanting it to past by and be another year old. Birthdays should always be important to everyone, because your birthday is your own very special day. I like to think of birthdays as a rite of passage, another chapter in your life that has been written. The chapter may have mistakes that you don't want to relive or remember or once in a lifetime memories. So, next time your birthday comes around...how about looking forward to it and owning it. And be sure to get a birthday cake and blow out at least one candle after of course you make your yearly wish! Speaking of wishes, I did have one this year, but I can't share that with you, because then it might not come true would it...? :)

A new pair of earrings fresh out of the Allura Marie Couture Jewelry Fall Collection. Inspiration for these earrings that I call "Beyond Brilliant" comes from those date nights out on the town in your perfect little black dress! With shimmering facets of jet black, smokey grey, and silver, these earrings are just enough sparkle to accent that little black dress!
I have to admit, I am a little sad that summer is now officially over, but I do LOVE fall of the year!! I love the nice chill that will be in the air and cause you to hug your loved one more tightly, I love the reds, oranges, and yellows that are everywhere, I love listening to the leaves rustling as they are getting ready to make their journey from the tree limbs to the ground, I love watching the leaves blow in the crisp air, and I love fall of the year because I get to watch my most loved sport with my husband, FOOTBALL! And of course fall of the year brings the new prime time TV shows!
Being married to a man who is from the mountains, we both love visiting the mountains during fall and getting to experience the slower pace of life and the peaceful experiences that the mountains have to offer. I am also a huge fan of warm crock pot meals and they are perfect end to a beautiful, clear, cool fall day and also a perfect way to bring the family closer together!
