I'm not one who celebrates all month long or sends out a warning "my" day is coming. Not that there's anything wrong with it, I'm just not much of a birthday person especially when it comes to mine. My birthday is like any other day around here.I don't want or need anything and am already living out my dreams in real life, everyday. 

I spent the day like this:
Morning with Chance
Brunch with the music man
It's still hot so a little bit of time in the garden
Time with my camera documenting the day
Listened to the music man sing songs
Ended the day with my family enjoying a delicious dinner
Check out this cake, crazy good and enough for everyone to grab a bite or two

I'm thankful for ~
a great day
a good man
my brown dog
a generous monkey
a black horse
a bug
fresh clean food from our garden
my family
my camera
a good glass of red wine
time with our buddies
new adventures to come
44 years and the wisdom it brings
We had a bit of a medical worry the last couple weeks and i am incredibly thankful for good news and good health!

    1. Love it Kar, yet something else we have in common :)

  3. Wahoo! Happy Birthday, Friend!

    I like to just be around the people (animals) that I love on my day too:)

    1. Thanks Hesper, I couldn't agree with you more, a day with the animals and my peeps, definitely makes for a great day.
