birthday girl

Today is my birthday.  I am now only a few years away from 40.  It is amazing how quickly it all goes.  While 25 or even 30 seems like a lifetime ago, it also seems I was just celebrating those birthdays.

For my birthday, I asked all my friends to share this blog on their Facebook page and share that I am raising money to help end breast cancer - and to bring awareness to this mission I will be walking 60 miles in 3 days.  What good friends I have.  Many shared this link on their pages and I really appreciate it.  My friend Jason also shared the information on his blog.  My mother sent me birthday money for some new walking shoes (I haven't bought new walking shoes in about 7 years) and a co-worker purchased an item off my blogger profile wishlist.  I am overwhelmed and encouraged by all of this support.  Fundraising is hard work!  I sometimes feel like a nag asking for contributions but I believe in this cause and I am walking the 60 miles to show it!

I have something on my mind to chat about but I will save that for another post.  Today is my birthday and I am going to cuddle up with a book, turn on some soft music and enjoy my evening.  I hope you do as well.
