Birthday and a Giveaway Contest

This weekend I had so much fun celebrating my birthday, thanks to family and friends who helped make it a very special day.

But I must confess the weeks leading up to it were filled with fear and anxiety. This year more than other any other year, I've been having all kinds of doubts about growing one more year older. Fears like will I be loved when I'm wrinkly and gray and so on kept popping into my head. I'm still the same little kid on the inside but the outside keeps evolving and changing into someone I don't really recognize anymore.  Do you know what I mean?

And so birthdays for me are becoming a time to pause and remember the importance of staying present; to take time to be thankful....appreciate every day as a gift.

Speaking of gifts I have a fun little gift giveaway contest just for you. It's my way of showing my appreciation to my readers.

The winner gets to choose one of the prints on wood from my shop HERE.  (Includes Free USA shipping too) All you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section below telling me which print on wood you like the best.
