It's a bittersweet time for me; saying goodbye to a decade always is.
Think about it, the first time, I was only 10. Not much happening there. I wanted to grow up so fast. I believe at the age of 10, my plan was to talk my parents into letting me attend the New York School of Performing Arts. I wanted to be a dancer more than anything else in the world.
I am fairly certain this movie was the inspiration for my 10 year old dream. I was in the thick of ballet and theater classes. It was my everything. My oh my.. how times have changed....

You may be wondering what influenced me at 20? Movies always did.
At 30.. oh sweet 30... I was in a completely different world. I has left television about two years earlier. I was married to my first husband, Chris. I lived in a great house in North Macon. I had exchange students, a garden. I was involved at church - basically living the "adult role." I was working as the Communications Specialist for a national nonprofit and living the suburban life.

Four different decades. Four different lives. Four different dreams.
Those last two movies are so perfect.. it is almost eery.
What has your past few decades looked like?
Have you ever stopped to see?
I am proud of who I am. I am proud of my experiences. And I am super proud to say I am 39 turning 40.. in one week. What will the next ten years bring?
