Wonderful friends, wonderful family and wonderful birthday!

I’ve had a wonderful 24th birthday and a little bit of a sun tan to go with it. The camping trip was so relaxing. We sat around the campfire reminiscing about the good ol’ times. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way. The only thing missing was my Dean guitar. The midnight air breathed softly as we sunk into our tents. We woke to find the beautiful sunshine peeking through to say hello in the morning.

A Camping we will go

Tomorrow we are heading to the lake/ campground with some of our closest friends to just relax and have a good time. Thus far, it’s been a great birthday. I’ve got to share in my joy with others that mean so much to me. There is something so capturing about sleeping underneath the starry night skies on a bed of green. The stillness and awe of it all silences my soul. What a great opportunity to share the beauty of nature with family, friends, and good food/drink.

Deciphering what to do for my 24th birthday.

My 24th birthday is in two weeks and I’m pondering on what to say when friends/family ask what I want to do. Camping is the first thing that came to mind. I would like to sit around a campfire with some of my closest friends, drink a few cold one’s, stuff my face with good food, and listen to the sounds of nature while sleeping underneath the milky stars. Or there is the thought of a new Kitchen Aid Mixer in a deep red color instead of my re-sale shop find hand mixer that is well, kinda lame. It has no rhythm and it’s just not jiving’ like it should. Maybe a vintage weight scale? Other than that..I really can’t think of anything that I just need. Maybe that’s part of getting older..we need less.
I’m just happy that I still have a kick in my step, pages to fill, memories to make, and friends and family to share the sparkle with.
