birthdays are often a time for reflection.
one of my favorite parts of the day is around 8PM, i call my mom. we stay on the phone for a few minutes or so as she tells me the story of how i was born. we laugh, we cry, and we love.
birthdays are often a time for celebration.
i had the opportunity to set time aside to catch up with some of my closest girlfriends on saturday night. on monday, most of my family got a chance to sit and have dinner. Dan and i are going out to dinner tonight. i have gotten countless likes, messages, texts, emails, tweets & sweets – i am overwhelmed and incredibly grateful.
i am reflecting and celebrating in my own quiet way this year. true to my #oneword2013, i was able to #finish the piece i have been working on – just in time for my birthday. the secret of all secrets? this is the first large scale piece i’ve completed in two years. it’s the first piece that i have shared from beginning to end.
it certainly feels good to be back.
