Happy Birthday to Me!

June 22, 2023

Today I’m 57!  What a trip! The years fly by, don’t they?  And I’ve had my burdens, but mostly I’ve had an amazing journey so far! And I’m truly looking forward to what comes next!

Sometimes I wonder what younger Dawn would think of 57 year old me.  But in my 20’s, I’m not sure that I thought much about being in my 50’s at all. And if I did, I thought I’d be a sweet little old lady by now. Which I guess I kinda am. And it’s not a bad thing to be! I’m looking forward to the years ahead. I have lots of retirement dreams!

This is what a wore for a fun sushi birthday lunch and some shopping time with my buddy Rachel.  I will celebrate with my hubby tonight and I’m pretty sure I’ll find a way to stretch it into a weekend celebration as well.

I’m working on my What to Pack for Alaska post and hopefully I’ll have that to share with you next week.

And as always, thanks so much for being a part of my fun journey into aging and style!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.

    Happy birthday Dawn Lucy. Yes, the older one gets the more the time flies. It’s because one can look back on more years than one could when one was a kid.
