Birthday Reflections and Greetings from Sanya, China

My birthday is Valentine's Day, and I love having my birthday on this special day, because everyone is in a great mood, and most of the time love is in the air.

Some people get grouchy about Valentine's Day, but I think it's a great day to give thanks, appreciation and love to those we hold near and dear to our hearts (much better than Thanksgiving--none of that senseless killing of millions of turkeys is involved!).

Today is a day I look back and feel proud of everything I have accomplished, all of the people I have met, and all of the places I have been to, all of the experiences that have taught me so much about myself, people, and the world I want to protect and live in.

My map from Facebook.. Dr. Seuss was right..
 "The more you read, the more you know.  The more you know, the more places you'll go!"
But as they say... there's no place like home!
Thank you to my older sister,  Karen, who sent me this really cute T-shirt.
I wear it with NY pride! :)

I felt so blessed and loved, waking up to birthday greetings from almost every continent of the globe.  Days like these make me realize my gypsy, traveling ways are not in vain.  Days like these make me realize im not so alone... every single person i've met along the way has influenced me, cared for me, inspired me in some way, so for that, i want to say THANK YOU for making my 28 years rich with happiness, jokes and funny memories.

Sanya was wonderful!  Please email me if you'd like some travel tips.  I was treated to a DELICIOUS birthday cake, fresh tropical fruit and veggies, clear sea, soft sand and warm sunshine!  What more could a gal want for her birthday??

Peace, love and happiness to you, today and always!

  1. A Person can merely enjoy two occasions relating to him/her
    One, is Birthday - a day in a year.
    Another, is Marriage Day - A Day in a Lifetime.
    Both are most precious ones, which stay memorable for a long time.
