Yippee!!! It's my I'm Celebrating Cindi!

Ok - kinda goofy today since I LOVE my birthday. And, I'm not ashamed to admit, it's my 39th birthday!  I've made this little page....since today I'm "Celebrating Cindi"....

Also, here I am at the start of my 39th year, feeling like I might have figured a few things out, finally. For example, I can attest that you do in fact get more bees with honey than you do with vineager....turns out you were right, mom! I have this plaque on my desk:

I have a new project I am hoping to start a 365 Project to document the year before I turn 40 (which I hear the 40s are better than your 30s...from a number of reliable sources). I usually don't like to tell people when I undertake a big project because if my past is any indicator of the future, I will usually do 2 days and drop it. Hopefully, I haven't just set myself up to fail here....I can use all the encouragement I can get.

I plan to plant flowers today, have lunch with my mom, my guy and my kids, and hang out with my family in the evening, all things that enrich my soul. And yesterday, my sister made me this awesome cake:
How cool is that?!?!

Finallly, if you have the day off of work because the 4th fell on a're know it's really for my birthday, right? ;)
