i am pushing 40!  like really pushing 40!  age has never been an issue for me, but for some reason turning 40 is kind of beginning to freak me out.  i find myself standing in the mirror squishing up my face to see if i have any wrinkles, checking for any sign of the first gray hair and wondering if those little aches and pains are age related vs. being biking injuries.

so, much to my dismay, a few months ago i began to realize that i was moving objects further from my face to read them!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

it was happening. the day had arrived that needing reading glasses was on the horizon.  i had been told by my eye doctor years ago that around the age of 40 people will begin to experience blurred vision.  he then informed me you just couldn’t escape it.  no matter how hard you tried.

so, if i can’t escape needing reading glasses – i will embrace them and refer to them as my GLAMOUR glasses!

when picking up a prescription at the drug store last week i wandered over to the reading glasses display.  the first pair i picked up was a + 1.50 and what do you know.  i could suddenly read close up again.  i tried on a few other pairs to confirm the strength but decided that the +1.50 was ideal for me.

i didn’t love any of the glasses in the display and decided to come home and look on Amazon {my favorite online shopping source} to see what i could find.  i fell in love with the brand gabriel + simone and decided on this pair.  i almost ordered this pair.  it was a tough decision, but the orange pair won out!

aren’t they adorable?  i loved the mix of the orange and tortoise and was certain that i would love them when they arrived.

my youngest son was quite impressed with my new GLAMOUR glasses.  that is a WIN in my book!

now i will be able to read my book at a comfortable distance from my face!  oh, the little things we take for granted!

so, as 40 looms around the corner i am going to remember these quotes.  and then, i am going to get over it!

    • “do not regret growing older.  it is a privilege denied to many.”
    • “you can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.”
    • “age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying you.”
    • “my favorite age is NOW!”
