42!

Shannon5

On 17 February 1973, a young woman named Judy entered a hospital in Manassas, Virginia and gave birth to me. She was only twenty years old at the time, and so many years have passed since then. I can hardly believe that I'm now 42! Each time I look at the year of my birth I'm in shock. :)) How can it be, when I still feel like a twenty year old at heart, and in spirit?

The past two years, I celebrated my birthday in Moscow, but this year I'll be warm and cozy in my apartment, looking at the white snow falling from the window. Mother nature delivered a snow storm to the Washington, DC area on my special day, and subzero temps for the past week. I guess it's good for a winter baby like me, to welcome a new year of life with snowflakes and my favorite temperatures. We can never know what life will bring us each year; however, there's always a certainty there will be ups and downs. Joys and sorrows. And I hope many adventures!

Hello 42...let's have some fun! :)

Russia - see you next week! I arrive on 24 February, and the first big journey of the year begins!

I would not say I'm "attached," but it's a fascinating country to visit. :) And I have close friends there.

Re: Happy BD!
I do not like entering new decades. :) But, I entered 40 two years ago, so now it's okay. The next drama will come at 50! :)) Btw, are you a fan of the classic American show "I Love Lucy"? I see America's most famous red head on your avatar. :)

Thanks! The photos were taken outside yesterday, in very windy conditions with temperatures below zero. My face was frozen. :)) It's good to have photographer friends, who can make you look nice in any conditions.

Thank you! Tomorrow will be a quiet, restful day because my work is closed due to the snowstorm. So, maybe I'll have time to write new posts, in between eating birthday cake. :))

Thanks! I try to be a calm person in life and not worry over little things. This helps you keep a youthful appearance longer. And I have no husband or kids to stress me out. :))
