Happy Birthday to me and David Lynch!

this birthday i have been dreading is finally here and it's been great!

coffee and scones for breakfast and some gorgeous presents. big thanks to sam and zoe for decorating the kitchen and just making the morning so special. and huge hugs to jimmy for basically everything.

so, i'm almost done with this list i started a week ago---49 things i've figured out in 49 years. today's seven will complete the list. writing these blog posts this week has been somewhat cathartic. it's reminded me of all the experiences i've had and that my life is more than just the day-to-day----which can sometimes feel a bit static. 49, 49, 49---it just doesn't seem possible. oy veh. the final seven.

Seven More Things I've Learned in 49 years

Blogging on a regular basis is really hard.

There are some things you can never take back.

Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. But most of the time you're somewhere in between.

Everything is so much easier when you're just who you are.

You will learn more from your kids than they will learn from you.

Most people are kind.

It never hurts to pray.
