Like I said before, we have very few photos from before digital. It's not that we didn't take them, we absolutely did take them. And I think we put them in photo books. But finding them now...that would be a trick.

Yesterday was the anniversary of the day I was born. A small gathering formed at our favorite local (though still a chain) Italian restaurant. I honestly love that place. Sissy and her husband came, along with Dad and Mamacita. And of course daughter and her husband. I nice small group. Sis (the middle sister) couldn't make it...but we will celebrate on our own later.
I started out with a lovely Moscato which I absolutely adore. I haven't had wine in a long while. This was so nice and refreshing. Jordan and I had the pork tenderloin, which may be my new favorite.
Here we are outside our favorite restaurant.
The secret weapon? More wine!! Lots of really good riesling. The wine was so good I didn't notice how many times D. refilled my glass. After I missed a few clues Sissy looked at Danielle and said "My partner is drunk!!".
What can I say? I wasn't at my best. But I had an enormously grand time.

This goose made a nest in the middle of a median in our work parking lot. Yep, right there beside where people actually park.
Although I didn't get a picture of him, the Pappa goose was never far away. The two walked around the parking lot for a couple of days before deciding where the nest should be.
The first hatchling appeared at about 1:00. Over the next hours three more babies hatched. They left the nest the next morning for their new home. I'm going to miss seeing Mamma goose each day. She never left the nest. She was there every morning when I drove into the parking lot and still there every evening when I left.
Both parents and babies are doing well...
A new goose family right in the office parking lot? AWESOME.

My Mother's Day started on Saturday. What a surprise to have a package delivered to my door. This is the sweetest note that makes the whole package so special! I've mentioned before how important birds are to our family. Both inside and outside birds. The note Danielle put with my gift is so sweet. She is so right, her gift does remind me of the Blue Bird House Memory.

I discovered a journal today that has some fun pithy sayings...or prompts. It is called "The Journal of Awesome". I was completely drawn to the title. When I flipped through I saw a few awesome things that made me smile.
- Finding the picture I'm posting and
- My husband coming home and surprising me with fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts! AWESOME!
