Well, it’s time to say so long 42. In a few short hours I’ll be turning 43. But let me tell you about how my last 3 days as a 42 year old went down.
On Saturday Mr. SOTSS and I took a boat trip along the Hudson River. (It was a birthday gift from my parents). It was super cold, windy and rainy but the trip was rain or shine.
The voyage took us past so many special places:
The Little Red Lighthouse (at the foot of the George Washington Bridge) which I’ve run to with my running friends…
The Statue of Liberty
Palisades Park which I’ve hiked in with Duncan
Yesterday Mr. SOTSS and I packed up the dogs and headed to New Hope, Pennsylvania for the afternoon (It’s about an hour’s drive). We parked on the New Jersey side and walked along Delaware & Raritan Canal tow path for a bit before walking across the bridge into PA.
We found a pet friendly restaurant with outdoor seating and sweet potato fries were had by all.
8 miles. 8 glorious, mind-clearing miles.
But eventually we made it out for a walk.
And at this very moment his head is buried in my armpit and he’s snoring.
I’m grateful to get to celebrate another birthday. And I plan on spending my 43rd year on earth conquering, exploring, running, loving, and enjoying but more than anything, growing.
How do you feel about birthdays?
Do you have traditions? Do you like to be alone or go out?
How was your Monday?
Ever stood in 2 states at the same time?
