Today I turn 42. When I tell people my age they are as surprised as I am. Oh trust me, there are days that I know I am in my 40's! I have gained 5 lbs that seem to want to stick around, got to experience a colonoscopy (thankfully it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be), have developed essential tremor because my job has finally gotten the best of me. And oh yeah, just ordered my first pair of progressive lens glasses (sigh). So yeah ... I am in my 40's. But then there are the fun things that keep me young - lots of live music, travel, photography and fabulous friends that keep me active and out and about! So what do I say to 42? Let's do this thing!
I opened my email tonight to a H U G E surprise - VSCO grid curators chose one of my photos to feature in the daily grid! If you don't use VSCO, you have no idea what I'm talking about, but VSCO is the only photo editing app that I use on my iPhone and I have a good number of their Lightroom presets as well. They pick some amazing images to feature and I am completely flattered (and excited) that I had an image chosen! Check out the page here to see the other amazing and beautiful images!

Oceaniaeuropeamericaafricaasia by creative director, Gustavo Sousa, uses the Olympic Rings to illustrate world inequality, depicting stripped-down statistics from each of the five world regions, through simple scale shifts of the Olympic’s iconic quintet of overlapping loops.
“The rings represent healthy competition and union, but we know the world isn’t perfect. Maybe understanding the differences is the first step to try to make things more equal.”
Then it was home to listen to my neighbor and his friends scooting their chairs in and out for three hours. I have complained about this guy for a while now. But today it wasn't just me!! Even my next door neighbor was banging on the ceiling. I hate being the bad guy. The grumpy neighbor. But this guy has no respect for others. I went up and knocked on the door. Asked him to stop with the chairs and as soon as he closed the door they were scooting again and laughing. So disrespectful. I would have been mortified if my neighbor complained about me/to me. ... via iPhone ...
