of magic and sprinkles
Roses stand alert in a blue-tinted mason jar that was once housed in my great-grandmother's kitchen. A dozen. And beside them sit the most beautiful star-gazer lilies. And slightly shy, tucked in the fridge, a third bouquet of delicious fruit fruit flowers - dipped and sprinkled and arranged delightfully.
Heaps of messages with various emojis deemed appropriate for celebrations - my day started out like magic, and it never stopped.
I have no idea what this year has in store for me - almost like the biggest birthday gift of all; surprises throughout the year at the mercy of The Unknown.
I do know this: I'm blessed beyond measure with the people in my life, the love I am shown daily, and the way my life is unfolding before my eyes - like something out my dreams. It's not perfect, but it's mine, and I'm so thankful for life.
Celebrating another year - of happiness, health, wealth, and blessings.
Here's to another year - starting it out with the best-decorated counter tops and my favorite kind of fruit - the chocolate-covered kind.
