Birthday Girl

The One Where I’m 43…

Today is my birthday. I’m 43. Such an odd number to say AND type. I don’t feel 43. I’ve been told I don’t look 43 either. Whatever THAT means!

I dunno. I think I’m still kinda just processing it all, ya know? I’ve always been the kinda girl who is crazy excited about her birthday. I count it down each year, and sing made up songs to my parents about it. Yep, I’m a pretty cool chick. Fo sho. This year has been no exception, it just all feels a little different. Not any one thing I can put my finger on either.

Maybe it’s that I’ve got a day full of errands, including a therapy appointment for B, that makes it seem so un-birthday like? Or making my own cake? I doubt it’s the latter though. I do that every year! What can I say, I like my own cakes!

Whatever IT is I’m sure will work itself out in the chaos of the day. And no matter what happens, I’m truly looking forward to seeing what 43 holds in store for me. I have a feeling it’s going to be an EPIC year.

Welcome to Like a Wrapstar!

Bear with me, y’all. It seems I am more than a little bit out of the loop on how to start a blog. Since it’s been like 8 years since I started one. That might be a tiny exaggeration, but only just barely. I’ve been fooling with this site for about an hour now and I don’t think it’s any clearer than when I started, but what can you do?

No, really. What can I do?!

I’m back in the blogging world because I want to talk about my health and wellness journey. And maybe also my boys and their Autism/SPD/NT journey. I have another blog I began when my oldest was just a bebe, but that doesn’t feel right to me anymore. So I’ve started this one. Just now. Today.

And I’m sure you’re all thrilled to bits. Great. ANOTHER blog. Just like the katrillions of blogs out there already. Except that’s not quite true because this is MY blog. So it’s already different by virtue of it just being me. See?!

Anyhoo. I’ll share stories, and recipes, and products I both use AND sell, as well as products I just plain love. I’ll talk about books and gardening and a little bit of this or a whole lotta that. I guess we’ll learn together what this blog is going to be about.

Thanks for stopping by.
