Pic of the Week: Birthday Inspiration

Cate Blanchett

Yesterday was Cate Blanchett’s birthday.  She’s 43 and looks fantastic.  Of course Cate is more than just a pretty face.  She’s an amazing actress and a mom.  So why am I focusing on her beauty?  Because I just had a birthday myself. And like many women my age, I have to admit that I’m a little scared of getting older.  Why? Because I fear losing my appeal.

I know, I know, you can’t read a blog or magazine without seeing all the hot 40-somethings out there.  But let’s face it.  The fear still lingers.

And then I see a pic of Cate whose birthday is a week after mine and I’m inspired.  Sure, Cate was born with a nice genetic package but she still gives me hope!
