Aging Gracefully


Even dried and off of the stem,
A rose is still a rose.






Hahaha, *snort. I have absolutely no idea what that's supposed to mean, it just popped into my head.

Marian: You are starting to feel like a member of the family. If I ever win the lottery, I'm coming over to visit you. Babyzilla is feeling much better today, but the antibiotics are reeking havoc with her tummy. She's a real trooper though, no complaints.
Mwahhhh! There's a smooch for ya. xo

You have longer hair than I thought...but...perhaps I've been away from the blogosphere too long.

I like the title: Aging Gracefully.
I like my women age gracefully than trying to look 35 for the rest of their lives with the help of plastic surgeon (which makes them even look more ugly than looking like a regular 60 year old woman.)

Miss Eve said...

Great pictures and I love your little quote :-)

Have a wonderful New Year dear Diane, cheers: Evi

Vic said...

Cute Hubby must be chasing you around the house all the time.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Dominica said...

I'll be 40 in 73 days !!! S.O.S.

Mel Spillman artwork said...

You're beautiful, and we have never even met!

I am aging gracefully too, today is my 38 birthday and I like it a lot. I can't wait to be 40 because the older I get the more peace I find in myself.

Fabulous dahling :) You look marvelous!

diane said...

JD: My oldest daughter and I were looking at stars with bad face lifts in a magazine just yesterday. I felt like crying for some of these women.

Evi: Thank you. Your photos are always wonderful too.

Vic: Cute Hubby's been sitting at the computer so long that the chair has the shape of his *ss on it.

Joanna: Are you gushing? Thanks pal, that's the best compliment.

Domi: No secret, just lots and lots of moisture. I'm always wondering what your beauty secrets are too.

Mel: You have a positive attitude, and that's KEY. (I thought you were a bit younger, btw)

I love the word "grace". It's the way to live.

JFK Jean said...

Definitely grew a moustache. You'll see how furry it got around the beginning of next month....it's out so much that it's itching my nose...I love it!
