Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes, messages and texts. Milestone birthdays especially when you are an adult are hard to plan in a world wide pandemic but my girls did such an amazing job. There were pedicures, a massage and a day full of surprises. I had such a wonderful birthday.

Since 2020, we have all had to rethink the things we felt were important. I am embracing the silver linings and moments spent together. So I’m going to celebrate my birthday all year long. Food experiences are one… new adventures will follow and an odd bucket list to be created and completed.

I’m also happy to say that my book is exactly where I wanted to be. Now just to look at publishing. Thank you for the pushing!!

Another dream realized Is my acceptance into MacEwan University this fall for Public Relations. (Honestly that scares me the most!!! What am I trying to prove at my age?????)

There are lots of things to be afraid of but I think to honour Ryan … one of them it can’t be living. So I will take those steps that frighten me or make me uncomfortable because a journey needs an end destination.
