Golden Richness



Me in my working duds, no makeup, just the hired hand (but with pearl earrings, note. Gotta love those oysters, taking something bad and turning it into something good.)
                                                    
I so love this quote:

 “I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its leaves are a little yellow, its tone mellower, its colours richer, and it is tinged a little with sorrow…its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor of the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and is content.” –Lin Yutang


I don't know how old the author of that is but I can so relate to that time in my life. I think I can see autumn in my face and you know that's not so bad.

you are very beautiful and nature is reflected in your face - what a legacy for your kids to see how good looking their kids are going to be :)

I wear my diamond tiny studs my hubby gave me 24/7; I figure it might be a good incentive for the kids to come retrieve me when i die far into the woods lol

You look great- autumn suits you! It's wonderful to reach the age of a little wisdom and still be young enough to enjoy it.
