Ah, the 40s — mostly wild and wonderful. Mostly.
|Jennifer Lee Robinson|
The 30s were the set up, the 40s are full-throttle. Careers are peaking, families are growing (and often children are arriving at, hmmm shall we say “challenging ages”), or perhaps unemployment has become part of the picture — totally unexpected, putting a strain and a spin on life that adds even more pressure, doubts and maybe fear. If things are going well it’s one of the best decades for a woman. You’re feeling healthy, determined, full of energy — when you get enough sleep — and you are relatively certain you have found your place, your calling.

Some of you are traveling, searching, celebrating freedom and adventure. Others are back to school or back to work after raising children, changing direction, with enthusiasm and hope. Single or in a relationship, you are probably mostly content with your life moving forward, and if not, you plan to make whatever adjustments it will take to put yourself back on course.
You’ve also decided, I hope, if you haven’t been taking the best care of yourself health and beauty-wise up to this point because, well, you didn’t really need to, now is the time to take a time out. You deserve the pampering and the time it takes to look beautiful and as you can see from the women in the earlier posts, you’re worth it. You’ll be glad you did.
It does look as if all the women pictured here are on message however.
A demain and please keep your photos coming to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are fascinating, absolutely fascinating.
Off to Paris. It’s raining, but if the sun comes out I’ll take some pictures for you.
