With the sun shining, I remembered my first birthday here in Seattle and having the day off from my agency gig. The sun was shinning all day, and I decided to ride my bike and go on an adventure. It was a good birthday.
Today, after dropping our girl off to preschool, I decided to hop on my old beach cruiser and go around the lake solo. Just me and my old, favorite bike.
The rest of my day was filled with such sweetness. Friends on FB sending me messages. Hand picked flowers from my daughter's school friend. Special hugs from 2 sweet brothers at her school. Flowers and handmade card from my friend's dear son. Handmade art from our daughter. Flowers from my man. Cards and gifts in the mail - all on this day. And let me not forget the chocolate on chocolate with a day filled with sunshine and a rainbow on our way home from dinner.
I am thankful for all these generous gestures today. I feel like these sweet moments happen often, not just on my birthday, but I don't look for them. That's going to change.
I felt very loved and appreciated today.
