Me, my mama, and my daughter

Today I turn 40.
My grandma sent me a birthday card.  Her shaky handwriting made me burst into tears.

My mom came to visit this past weekend.  It was wonderful to see her.
She bought me a gift of birthday shoes: brown Dansko clogs.  My favorite!

I love my birthday.  I was BORN!
This world is a weird but wonderful place.  I am happy to be here!

a hundred tiny bubbles in the palm of my hand

Have you ever had tiny bubbles come out of your dish soap bottle?

I always
in that when it happens!

My Achy Autumn Bones

Taken on my back patio.  'Tis the early Autumn sunrise.

I don't know what it is about Autumn.
It makes me sweetly melancholy and quiet on the inside.
It makes me long for quiet afternoons with family.
It makes me want to take slow walks and watch the way the sun light and shadows are different in their slant and shape...unlike any other time of the year.

This is my first Arizona Fall.
It lacks the color display and crisp temperatures of the season, but it has everything else to make me want to curl up and hug my achy Autumn bones.

It's October!  I just wish I could wear a sweater.
Tomorrow it should finally dip below 100°.

This month...
my mama is coming to visit me in two weeks.  We haven't seen each other since June.
And I turn 40 on the 19th!  Yippy!

Have a lovely day.
