Just around the river bend...

Today is the 8th of November.  That means a couple of things to me.  One that (one of) my brother's birthday was a handful of days ago, my sister's and mother's birthday is in a handful of days and then my my husband's birthday comes riding in. 

I love getting gifts.  Sitting pondering what best suits the other person.  Going over their desires and trying to to pick the perfect something.  It is a fun way to slow down and focus on what you like about that person... it almost always ends in with desiring to spend time with them.  Good luck to me since Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner!

 I think I’ve discovered the secret of life – you just hang around until you get used to it.
