Fabulous…. but not quite 40 !!!!

Tommorow I will be 39…
I don’t really think I like that number as it feels like I am stuck in a time vaccuum between my 30’s, and the supposedly Fabulous 40’s.
My 30’s have seen the best and worst of times in my life from getting married and having my kids. to miscarriage, redundancy and illness..

So it is with a bit of trepidation that I enter this final year but also a hope that the coming year will unlock doors and allow me to reach new heights.
Right now I need to focus on Blessings rather than the negative.

The Foundations I have made in the last 3 years will hopefully stand me in good stead for the coming year.
Plans and Presents is going from strength to strength with a large focus of my work being on clients coming for Destination Weddings, and I am achieving some more editorial in Wedding publications.
The Blog is growing in popularity after its revamp and I look forward to its continued growth.

My 30’s have brought me something I always wanted and that is Family.
I am blessed with a loving husband [he snores, and he is a grumpy Edinburgher but I love him nonetheless].
Since we got married on a sunny August day in 2004, we have been blessed with Kathryn, my 6year old teenager, and Leo, my 4 year old Thomas Tank obsessed
monster.

They drive me crazy, and the word no seems to be an alien concept most of the time but the smiles, the cuddles and the Mummy I love you’s are more priceless
than any success I could ever have. Business may take time and I might still be growing with that but I know as a mum I ain’t half bad….

As for the Future, none of us know what that holds. My forward thinking is on building a solid foundation for my kids and taking the Business
to higher heights.
Sometimes we have to focus on each new day that we wake up, and appreciate the goodness thats around us.
Such awful things happen in the world and though life can be an incredible challenge sometimes there is always someone worse off.

So on this day as I approach a new chapter of my life, I should maybe celebrate everything that I have achieved and hope to as I close my 30’s.
Maybe you don’t have to be 40 to be FABULOUS !
