This is one of those things that is simple but can end up meaning a lot or at least having some sort of simple effect.
I found a website called On This Day.
I think I thing I lived the most was Famous People Born on August 26th. I have the same birthday as Mother Teresa! What an honor.
Then there is specific events that happened on the day. How cool is it that I was on born on Women’s Equality Day!
So cool! I encourage everyone to check out the site. Learn a little about your day of birth. Please share some interesting points you find.
I know as a 33 year old woman I should probably already have my stuff together enough to have a complete list of my family’s birthdays but with one of my sisters, seemingly, having a baby every year it is hard to keep up.
So I have reached out to all my siblings and asked for birthdays so I can keep a running calendar… this will also make a task later in the year easier: Send Birthday Cards to Family Members.
So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since.
Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!
Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it.
The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.
The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.
This event meant so much more to me than simply running a 5K.
I did a 5K for Melanoma Research Foundation. I talked about it earlier this year when I decided to raise money for the group. But the experience today surpassed anything I could have expected.
I ran for me (I am a melanoma survivor), I ran for my friend Kelly, whose father passed away from melanoma, and I just ran for anyone that deals with this horrible disease.
It was a beautiful day. Our team had a great time and raised a lot of money.
Sometimes the simplest things can go a long way. I know that from personal experience and I think most people feel the same way.
So this has been on my list, obviously,
all year but I realized it was my friend Sara’s birthday I thought there was no better day than today to do this one.
I love how much she appreciated it… 😀❤
