51

I started doing birthday shoots when I turned 46, and had grand plans for my 50th birthday. Then things got very craptastic and pandemicky, and I never found the simultaneous energy, motivation, and time to do the shoot I wanted to do to commemorate that milestone.

Having missed that year, I really wanted to do something special for my 51st. And when I saw these pasties from The Playful Pear, I knew exactly what that something special would be.

So here I am, unretouched, as I began my 52nd year, with a sparkly message for all the people who think maybe I shouldn’t still be doing what I’m doing.

Also this page will be updated with a photo of my birthday cake when I bake it which I will do as soon as I get more powdered sugar that I thought I already had.
