So my website was offline for 48 hours this week. 48 hours of pure unadulterated torture for me. I’ve had this space, in one way or another, for nearly nine years, and for it to not exist was almost more than I could bear. I mean, that’s sounds ridiculous, right? But this site is an extention of me. It’s my work in the world. It’s my safe place, my soap box, my confessional. Every time I clicked to see if the site was back up (my hosting company had big server issues) I’d get this ugly “this site does not exist” message and I swear, a little piece of my heart withered and died. So yeah, ridiculous, but hells bells, this place means the world to me.
I love you, little site. Please don’t ever leave me again.
In other news, I spotted this blossom on my walk home from the gym today. Oh happy day, spring might be on her way soon.

When I asked everyone to share their positive stories about aging last week I had in the back of my mind that this might make a lovely ebook to share…. so we’ve made one :) Reading all the posts in one hit made my newly 41-year-old heart nearly burst — there’s so much collected wisdom here. So many truths I needed to hear myself, so much evidence of what we have to look forward to. If you’ve ever felt the wobbles about getting older (and we all get them at some point, non?) this lovely ebook really is the antidote.
You can download The (Delicious) Truth About Getting Older ebook right here — it’s completely free, of course!
I hope you find yourself (or your future self) somewhere in the pages xxx
