I spent my day hanging out with Greg and David, who is visiting from Switzerland. (Thanks for the chocolate!) It was a lovely Sunday, and a big chunk of it entailed sipping warm beverages while enjoying this view. Hope y'all had a good day, too!

Today is my 39th birthday. Thanks to Greg and friends and family for making it a lovely day. There are a lot of new books for me to read and a cake to indulge in. Yay!

I must admit to feeling a little weird about turning 39. Last year of my 30s. A milestone year coming up. It seems intimidating. Maybe I should view it as a challenge to branch out a little, break up some of my routines and explore new activities. Here's to hoping the year ahead is a great one! Thanks to all of you for your continued friendship!
