We interrupt your regularly scheduled Eye Candy Friday to say: It’s my BiRthDaY!
And this is what 53 looks like around here:
Okay, so technically that’s 52.999 since I took it last night right before we went out to dinner. And yes, it’s edited, because I’m a photographer and no photo is ever the best when it’s straight out of the camera. But it’s still my truth. Some fine lines on my face, gray in my hair (I stopped highlighting it over a year ago now and I’m glad), more weight than I’d like . . . but that’s me and I’m okay with all of it because another trip around the sun sure beats the alternative.
Have a great weekend!
Happy Birthday ?! Wishing you a most wonderful year to come!
53 looks terrific on you!
I’d say you’ve shared some beautiful Eye Candy with us today, Carole – Best wishes for your next trip around the sun!!

Happy, happy (belated) birthday, Carole! You are beautiful! And I love that you post photos of yourself. So many friends and bloggers don’t. which I think is such a shame. It’s lovely to see the person behind the words!
