My first plant-strong birthday! I celebrated with a jumbo carrot cake cupcake this morning and opened my hubby’s gift–a beautiful Bill Campbell bowl. Bill Campbell produces my favorite pottery in the world–unique, timeless, complex, and just gorgeous. The bowl is filled with clementines on the kitchen counter now. My children were at a Mother’s Day Out program this morning, so I went shopping alone and got a Nine West green handbag on clearance for $13.50, some funky socks, and a new, giant, pink reusable water bottle.
Birthdays are supposed to be a time of reflection on the past and anticipation of the future. Since changing my nutrition in September, I’ve lost 21 lbs. I feel awesome and certainly not “older.” This birthday, I feel younger and hotter than I have since before my first pregnancy in 2008. I am so very excited for the challenges and adventures yet to come.
