Blessed Birthday

Last month, I celebrated another birthday and I could not feel more blessed. After spending most of last year and part of this year recuperating from some very serious health issues (see post here), I am so happy to see another year and have the opportunity to spend it with the person I love most in the world – my mom.

Since my mother and I are very close, it has become a sort of tradition that we spend my special day together doing something a bit adventurous.  Last year, we went horseback riding and paddle boating (see Instagram post here).  The year before that we went ice skating, mini-golfing and go-kart racing (see post here). And this year we were determined to keep the tradition alive.

After a bit of research, we decided to go fishing and, to our surprise, it was absolutely amazing.  It was the most fun I’ve had in ages.

Despite our lack of experience, we were able to snag some fish and some crab, but we had to throw them back.  After that we went roller skating and had a ball at the rink’s arcade.  It was truly a great day.

Below, are some snapshots from that day.
