This is a special Fab 40’s post for me. This will be the end of my 40’s! I can’t believe it. Next month, I’ll be turning that magic special number 50! Expect a whole post (or ten) about that, but today it’s all about goodbye to my 40’s.
And this month the Fab 40’s picked boho for a theme. I couldn’t be happier about that! I think it’s the perfect swan song for me.
My 40’s brought me so many amazing gifts: My wonderful love and husband, Shannon, a beautiful home in a neighborhood I’ve always dreamed about, my dear spoiled rotten fur babies, and of course the best hobby ever, blogging. And blogging has lead to connecting with all of you sweet readers.
I wish I could say my 40’s were all sparkles and happiness, but I lost both my mom and dad. The depth of that pain was rocked me to the core. I also lost a sweet little kitty. At least I’m fortunate enough to have so many wonderful memories of all of them to keep my company through the years.
Enough serious stuff. Let’s have fun and talk some fashion …
My readers all know that I love the boho vibe. When I first thought of starting a blog, one name that went though my mind was “Boho Chic … It’s Not an Oxymoron!” Hee. Chalk it up to a childhood spent in patched bell bottoms, suede clogs, and prairie dresses.
