Age 49

I think it took me most of my 30s to figure out who I wanted to be when I grew up. Now that I’m in my 40s, I am sure I’m doing what I was meant to do and with whom I’m meant to be with, life is a whole lot easier, and MORE FUN!  

I am living my most extraordinary life right now by having a business that I love, planning to take more than a month off per year to travel and enjoy life a bit more, and working my way through our house we bought six years ago, finally finishing up some home projects and decorating so that we have a “grown-up” house!   

In the next decade, I want to get back into great shape, and as I turn 50 in 2023, ride in The Registers Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa, which has been on my bucket list for 20 years.   We also want to buy a condo or beach home somewhere cooler for the summer months.  

I have so much internal head trash about how I look that I almost canceled my session! But I pushed through, and I’m so glad that I did! Even though I don’t look physically as I wish I did, I was so taken by the images and felt powerful and beautiful at the same time!
