Birthday Crowning

There is no better time to 
Crown Yourself
than a birthday!

So of course that's just what I did!

I Crowned Myself
with joy!

Proud to be one year older at 56 now!

When on my birthday eve
Ari Seth Cohen of
started following me on
it was perfect timing!

Because it reminded me 
of the shift in the idea of aging
that is taking place.

And that shift 
has to begin inside each of us.
We all must realize 
celebrate the great gifts
that come with being one year older.
So that we can not only inspire each other
but remind those coming behind us
that there is honor in getting
older and wiser.

A new beauty that is unfolding.

This year I intend to 
Crown Myself
celebrate my years!

All the time making it a priority
to seek
 out joy in the everyday

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. Happy Birthday Dear Tamera! Your birthday crown is extraordinary, and so are you in your colorful and brilliant outfit which is a feast for the eyes. As you state, I believe that the attitudes regarding aging are changing and that you are a catalyst to that shift, along with others who lead the way. Yes, it does begin within, with the support of others who are moving forward with a more kind and gentle culture for all. Hope that your celebration is divine!
