Celebrating a Great Trip Around the Sun

It is that time of year. A new Spring – a new trip around the sun. And this has been the best birthday ever! Here is why…

I unknowingly gave up drama and unnecessary complications in my life as a New Year’s resolution – actually before then, but it’s stuck. My life is so much simpler now, and I think I can keep this trend going. Little by little over the years, I’ve dropped the stuff that has made my life stressful, and I have finally reached the place where I am reaping the rewards. Happy Birthday to me!

I’ve spent a good part of the day soaking up Vitamin D while planting milkweed seeds (hooray for the Monarch butterflies), cleaning the pond, and working on my fence garden. (Pictures of progress to come). Thank you, Mother Nature, for cooperating this year! I’m  also going to purchase and plant two new ornamental cherry trees this week. May the Spring blossoms that fill my soul resume. 🙂

In other news, one of my bff’s delivered a delicious lunch, tulips, and  her sweet company for the afternoon, another friend dropped by with a copy of my favorite sketch of hers EVER, and Doc – the hubby – sent me flowers for the first time in many years.  Plus, I learned that my daughter won a writing competition at the district level from her high school’s Facebook page, because why would she tell me something like that…

It has been a great trip around the sun and I’m hopeful the next one will be too
