It's a big weekend around these parts, and there is lots of celebrating planned. First up, my birthday. I will celebrate 44 trips around the sun on Saturday, 44 trips my friends! I am going into this birthday with a renewed enthusiasm for life and all that it holds. I am happy, I am feeling strong, and I am excited about the direction my life is headed. I wasn't sure how this birthday would play out a few months ago, but it seems that everything has fallen into place to create the perfect backdrop for my special day, and for that I am so very happy.
Second, we welcome spring on Sunday. If I am being honest it really doesn't feel like we had much of a winter, but still, I am excited about the arrival of spring. Seasonal changes hold a special place in my heart, I love them, and always feel like they are the perfect time to re-evaluate, set new goals, dream a little, and just take a little time to celebrate life. To welcome spring we are meeting friends in the woods for a hike in the morning, and then heading back to their place for a Spring Equinox lunch, and a bit of play time for the kids, while us adults chat.
Third, I have a little something for you. In celebration of both my birthday and the arrival of spring I am hosting a little giveaway. Up for grabs is a rope basket, a spring peg person, healing salve, and lip balm...all made with love, by me.
