Thanks for the advice about the anti-aging creams. I was suspecting that they wouldn't be worth the high price. But everyone else I know in my age group uses one or another. And still looks their age, in my opinion.

You're luck to look youthful. I don't. I look old for my age, I think. Part of it is having had a very active outdoor lifestyle, in a sunny, high altitude place for a long time. Tends to be hard on the skin. Even so, my husband, who is 2 weeks older than me, looks younger. I have more gray hair and more wrinkles. Sigh.

I had a lovely chat with my husband about it last night, though. He said that he'd much rather have had (and keep having) all of those experiences with me than have a youthful looking wife. And that he thinks that my beauty has not diminished one whit. He's a real treasure.

One thing that helps me feel youthful is that lots of things in my life are at a stage where most people experience them younger. I've started a second career recently, and my daughter is young (we had her relatively late). It does help me feel young, although then I look in the mirror and realize how much older I look than my peers in these realms, which can be a bit of a shock.
