I love birthdays! Its that one special day a year that is all about you! :D And my husband and girls made it just that - a day for me. I turned 39! Wow, 39. If I sit and think about it, its definitely bizarre. Where does the time go? How did I get to be this age? It doesn't seem right - I remember when my parents were this age! On the other hand, I can say its a great age, a wonderful time in life! Its busy for sure, the girls are growing, becoming young ladies, making friends, learning ... but I wouldn't change a thing.
So, for my birthday, my husband and girls planned a day they knew I would love. I love nature. It reminds me of being a kid, playing in the woods, making forts. There's something about the fresh forest air and wonderful smells! So, they planned a day of hiking and waterfalls. They made sure I brought my camera. It was a day of favorite things ... being with my family, photography, hiking, fresh air, nature, favorite snacks, etc. It was the perfect birthday!
