That number seems fairly young, but holy smokes, I feel about 50. It's amazing how emotional upheaval ages both the body and mind.
My goal for today: to bring that mental age down a few notches.
I love this time of year - fall is starting, colours are changing, the weather is crisp and comforting. I find I can stop - even just for a moment - and be more mindful. It's ok to sit inside, curled up with a book (and some wine) - with no judgement. Life slows down just a little.
And I like that.
To me, my birthday signifies the start of this seasonal change.
And like clockwork, this process usually begins with the planting of some heuchera, my favourite fall plant. I love the deep, rich colours and leafiness of this plant. It screams get out your sweaters, it's getting cold. It even looks healthy, right? A salad for your eyes...
Birthdays are also a great reminder of the people, friendship, and love in our lives. I am so in awe of the people I get to call my friends and my family. Thank you for helping me celebrate this day by putting a great big smile on my face...
