Today I am 34; and that’s in normal human years, not Hollywood years. Actress friends of mine have informed me that in Hollywood when an actor says he/she is 34 it really means they’re 39.
Funny, but 10 years ago I would never have guessed that this is where I’d be at this age. At 24 I was a newly wed and I would have figured that by this age I’d be a buyer at some glamorous specialty retailer…or better yet, own my own boutique that sold cocktail dresses and bridal gowns. That used to be my dream. I was never really excited about being married but I was always thrilled with the idea of having a wedding. I’m all about the princess-for-a-day-thing. And while my marriage may have fallen apart my bridesmaids are STILL thanking me for the dresses I picked out for them. I don’t mean to brag but those may be the only bridesmaid’s dresses that have not only been worn again (on multiple occasions) but are so classic that they will never go out of style.
But now I’m a divorced single mom with a spectacular (albeit high maintenance) little boy and no boutique (although I do watch Project Runway so my interest in fashion isn't completely dead). I also have this incredible writing career. My books can be found all over North America, Europe and Australia. Today alone I received three reader emails from France! I’m not dating anyone seriously but I do have a promising flirtation going on with someone I met on my East Coast tour (you know who you are). All and all I’m actually pretty happy; stressed with deadlines and my son’s school issues, but happy.
My life didn’t turn out the way I had planned and thank God for that!
So go out and get yourself a special cocktail, frappuccino or dessert in honor of my special day and if life has been rough lately take heart; sometimes things have to get really bad before they can become truly fabulous.
