Today is my 30th birthday!
I'm grateful for:
-Parents who are loving, supportive, and committed to education.
-The lessons I continue to learn from my confident, feminist Mom and my active, outdoorsy Dad.
-A smart and sweet brother who is one of my best friends.
-Nick, for sharing adventures with me and always being excited to learn something new.
-Friends, old and new, who bring joy to my days. Especially the brilliant and gifted-advice-giver Eileen.
-My health, mobility, and energy.
-How fortunate I have been to see so much of the world and meet so many amazing people.
Things that are making me happy:
-Being a student again.
-Fall bike rides with fellow library school students.
-This song that I have been listening to all morning.
-Seeing bylines and photo credits for dear friends in fancy publications.
-Ordering a pretty dress that I've had my eye on.
-Apples and tawny port
-Visiting Detroit and seeing the Smashing Pumpkins in a few weeks (Thanks Nick!)
-Learning more about my camera in my photography class.
-Excuses to buy new books.
-Perfect running weather.
-Feeling healthier than I did at 25.
I'm a lucky lady. I'll be back with a recipe soon. Cheers!
