Happy Birthday To Me!


Today is a pretty big birthday for me. I am 45 years old. It's not really a big birthday in terms of any particular numerical significance. But since I almost died last August (heart attack), the fact that I am alive, my heart is still cranking away (with a little bit of help from a stent), I am healthy and continuing to recover, makes this the most important birthday of my life.

To celebrate, my totally awesome husband surprised me with a trip to the Black Point Inn in Maine. We are taking Natty for 2 nights in Maine, then coming back home for fireworks and a Fourth of July parade in our hometown. I feel incredibly blessed to be celebrating this birthday.

I hope all of you have a great holiday weekend!

Happy Birthday! Yes I have been there to Black Point Inn. Beautiful place, so serene. I use to live in Maine, and I also went to that coast line a lot. What a perfect gift and a beautiful memory to keep.
