I turned 38 last Tuesday. I took three days off work and had the most wonderful of birthday celebrations. My days were filled with friends, food and time with Frank doing my favorite things in Fort Worth.
I made S'mores cupcakes again this year. Homemade and toasted marshmallows on top this time.
We go to the Japanese Gardens in the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens every year around my birthday. It is the perfect time to see the leaves changing and the weather was just right.
On Monday we had an "Epic Picnic" and a hike in the Fort Worth Nature Center. It is one of my favorite secluded places in the area. There are hiking trails and they are actually hilly. I had been planning this picnic in my mind since our vacation when we picnicked in Central Park and Great Falls State Park. It lived up to my expectations!
On Tuesday night we had dinner with four of our closest friends. My friend Alley snapped this picture of my and I think I look so happy here. I truly feel honored and blessed to have a life filled with friends and love and to have spent my birthday enjoying delicious food and the beauty of perfect Fall days in Texas. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday!
*I don't think I shared this but I twisted my ankle jogging about three weeks ago. It could have been a lot worse, but I had to sit out for three weeks. I'm finally back at it and do not want to miss any more of these perfect days. I just need to be outside, especially when the weather is nice. Not getting to run makes me tense and I'm so glad my ankle has healed.
