Author: Jenny Blake
Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want
Prompt: Future self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)

Well honey

You are embarking on 2011 and i have already been there - i won't tell you what happens because i know you love surprises..

there will be some

but all i want you to know is that you have the tools, the equipment, the mettle to meet them... surprises and all

enjoy your skin - you think you are wrinkly now - ha!
enjoy your girls - they are now in high school and all the attendant joys will make you look on those days - swimming in their undies in the river, coming for cuddles in the bed early every morning seem like an idyll...
enjoy the small things that swell your heart with gratitude - they are your friends and will always be with you

you are loved and guided safely my dear

love Jane
ps stick with the clevedge pledge ok?
