First of all I want to say THANK YOU – thank you to all of you who left such sweet and wonderful comments on my birthday. I can’t tell you how much they meant to me. The thought of turning fifty was a hard one for me – harder than actually turning fifty because you all made it so fun!
You see I woke up on my fiftieth birthday to this..
This was the view out my front door as I came downstairs that morning. I think it was God’s way of saying “Happy Birthday Leigh Anne, 50 is going to be beautiful!”
And then I had an idea.
Sometimes my ideas are a little dangerous, my friends and family have been known to shake and tremble when I say those words, “I’ve got an idea!”
But this idea is a good one, I promise.
I have decided that each day of my 50th year (I guess technically it is my 51st) I am going to find the pretty in being 50. Each Saturday or Sunday I will share with you through photographs the pretty I found in being 50 that week. So not only will I be Finding 50 but I will be finding the pretty in being 50!
One of my goals for this year is to improve my photography and I have signed up for a photography class so this will be a great way for me to practice for the class too.
I hope you enjoy sharing my little journey of Finding 50! Invite your friends to follow along.
Here’s my first week of Finding 50!
