50 ANS

I made it!  50 years old and going strong.

On my daughter Maggie’s birthday each year, I send (or do my best to send) an invitation to celebrate that includes the following text. Today, the invitation is for me:

“Join us in celebrating 50 years of life.

No presents please, plant a flower or a tree for me.”

Thank you for all your support for Alabama Chanin… and me.

As my father reminded me: “This is going to be the best decade of your life!”

P.S: For those of you who have been asking, my cleanse was a success – or should I say a beautiful and permanent change of lifestyle:  25 pounds lighter and I feel 10+ years younger.

Now, on to cleansing my life, home and studio! It is going to be a wabi-sabi life – starting today…

    Happy Birthday and it’s good to read that your cleanse was a success. I want to try it. I will be 50 next year and want to lose weight and go “wabi sabi” too. I hope to celebrate my 50 years by going to your class at Penland. I hope that the 50s is the best decade!

    Happy birthday, Natalie! I hope this will be a great decade for you, full of joy and great things.

    I miss you and hope you’re well. We were just saying all sorts of good things about you at the Firehouse the other day–hope you’ll come visit again sometime soon.

    xo,
    Liesl
