Welcome To My Birthday Season…Yes, I Said Season!!

We have all heard of Christmas time referred to as the “Christmas Season”, right?  Although Christmas is celebrated on the 25th day of the month, there were events that led to that special day….hence the term Christmas Season.  So there are celebrations throughout the month.  Office parties, family gatherings…trips are planned around this season.  So for the most part, the whole month of December, there are people celebrating.  So, that got me thinking (what else is new, right?). 

Well…..since my birthday is in August….I’ve declared this month to be my “Birthday Season”.  And what this will mean for me is that for this entire month….I will make 1 day a week very special by doing something just for me and something that will make me feel pampered in some way.  Then the week of my birthday, I will take a road trip home to see family and friends that I haven’t seen in over 10 years!  I am so excited and looking forward to this trip.  I have been meaning to get home for a long time, but you all know how it is when you let work, issues, procrastination and everything else get in the way of doing the things you only think of doing.

Well, not this month ya’ll!! I am taking this show on the road!  I plan to take lots of pictures and some video so I can share the journey.  There are memories that I have about home that are beginning to fade, and what better way to refresh them than to get some photos!  This is actually the thing I’m looking forward to the most.  Of course, seeing family and friends is high on the list…but the trip itself is what I’m looking forward to.  Taking a drive and just spending time watching the scenes along the way change as I get closer to home.  Then, the moments when the landscape begins to look familiar….seeing landmarks that you haven’t seen in many years, and realizing how much progress has happened….all while you’ve remembered things as they used to be.  I will be counting the days until my trip!

So, again…it’s birthday season this month.  So for all the other Leos out there, here is my Birthday shout out to you all!  Make this your birthday season too and have a blast for me, cuz I’ll be celebrating for you too!
