Age is an interesting thing, especially after a certain point in life, a point that varies for each of us. The way you wrote this and still managed to make yourself feel beautiful despite the age and the emotions that arise with every birthday after twenty or thirty was wonderful. You captured the spirit of being young forever and living life to the very fullest no matter your age.
Amazingly written and definitely well worth the win.
What a brilliant take on being middle aged, best description I've ever heard/read, also,I don't know if it was on purpose, but I love how your format creates an almost feminine silhouette, soooooo genius :-P thank you for sharing the experience of being middle-aged with us younger ladies :-)
