In just a few days I am entering my 40s. It’s had me thinking about many things since my 30th birthday – a marriage, three moves including a move from Florida to Virginia, and the addition of 3 more kids (twins being the topper.) When I look back at my 30th birthday party, I I have to laugh. It included a divorce 3 days prior, kids at a very nice French restaurant, and a clown. I kid you not, my mother hired a clown for my surprise 30th birthday. Perhaps Bo Jangles, the clown, brought some luck to my 30s after all.

Speaking of a 30th birthday photo shoot, remember the 30th birthday party I mentioned above? The one with the clown at the fancy restaurant with kids two days after my divorce.

Spray paint your fabric black and wave good-bye re-creating a death to my youth photoshoot.
