I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 64 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins
(another one on the way!).
I have a beautiful second home/
www.jasminevilla.com
I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Thank you for reading my butterfly blog. I really do think of them as my children and I love to see them grow and fly away. Congratulations to your son. I am always happy to hear about other butterfly enthusiasts.

    I like the, "maybe if we leave winter behind, so too shall we leave the crud behind" theory. Then again, I live in a place where it was 65 degrees today (plus thunderstorms) and it might snow on the weekend, so...

    Here's to health, regardless!

    thanks for stopping by my GET REAL blog. I remember when SNACK WELL cookies came out and everyone cleaned out the shelves because they were DIET cookies. I wouldn't go near any of that junk anymore. { Stella Doro Italian Biscotti? maybe}
    Have a great week emoticon
