30 on the 30th

This year was it.

My golden birthday.

Grace cried last year when she learned that she would have to wait until she was 29 for her golden birthday.

It was a glorious day filled with an adventure that made me feel like I was 18 again.

Carl took me canoeing down the Sauk and Mississippi rivers. (We haven't done this in over 10 years.) It was picture perfect blue puffy clouds with a slight breeze, 70 degrees...not too hot nor too cold along with the perfect company it was amazing.

Time stood still for those couple of hours.

It was a wonderful blessing that will stay etched in my mind forever.
