Thirty Nine...

It is almost full moon... I noticed the moon as we swam underneath the stars while the moonlit sky was shining all around you... the moon revealing intricate silhouettes all around me... Like those Victorian shadow theatre plays I have always wanted to watch in the middle of some market in some European city... I inspect my surroundings the shape of the trees and of course your body...


When I was nineteen and a half years of age...
Yes, I did the math and mathematically that would be half of thirty nine...
I would have never thought I would want to celebrate so privately, quietly and dignified...

My Husband and I... August 10th 2011

I could not imagine I would be so happy with so many little things...
Little things that just add up to be a whole lot...
Yes, I did the math...
And all those little things add up to big things...

My universe...

Mi Familia


Thirty eight was painful...
Thirty eight was tough...
Thirty eight was sweet...
Thirty eight was lovely...



Thirty nine feels good...

I wish to wear and live it loud and proud...
I feel lucky and so very blessed to be here...
Tonight and underneath this moonlit sky...

Forsyth Park, Savannah, GA

I welcome thirty nine...

    Hi there! New follower from the Lots of Lovin Weekend Blog Hop! I hope you'll follow me!
    If my GFC doesn't show up, try reloading your page. It's being weird for some reason.

  10. ahh, to be 39 again. No. Maybe not. I had alot of heartache during that year...50 is good. Life is simpler.
    I love this last tree photo. With all the spanish moss. I love trees. and photos of trees!
    Thank you, for being you. No matter how old.

  11. Thank you for following (but most especially for reading)! Happy of happiest birthdays! Your family is gorgeous and your photos are stunning.

  12. Happy Birthday...39 was a good year...wait until you hit your 40's. I'm working on mine, and added another one this past 27th of July. Where does the time go? :)

    I know the moon is officially tomorrow, but it looked pretty full tonight. Around 11:00 tonight (Friday), be sure to try and see the meteor shower. I'm hoping the brightness of the moon won't effect seeing it too much.
