Birthday Trip

Instead of a big party for my b’day, I decided a trip was a far better idea. A trip alone – a rare and sacred occurrence for a stay at home mom. I booked myself a red eye flight to Florida to visit one of my dearest friends. She just moved into a lovely house complete with pool and guest room…how perfect is that? I feel so lucky! The heat will be ridiculous and the humidity…ugh…my hair is going to hate me, but who cares.

J is an outstanding friend. Her warmth, loyalty, constant support, artistic flair and brilliant mind add up to one pretty amazing woman. She’s a real blessing in my life and I can’t wait to catch up with her. We’re actually going to try and make this a bit of an artists retreat. She’s getting all her paints, brushes and canvases ready in case we feel inspired to create. I’m also hoping to journal, read and do some collage work too.

I will be back on Aug. 31st! Have a fantastic week!
