Two weekends, a birthday, and a surprise!

I previously stalled doing these life posts because my life in my view is quite ordinary, and while that aspect has yet to change, things have finally happened in my life worth sharing- rarity indeed!

The weather in NYC has FINALLY, I mean FINALLY turned around.
This weekend was superb and this better not be another teaser because we are tired of the parka's which many people are still sporting around.

A glimpse at our glorious and much appreciated sunshine!


Now while I snap away like a ninny at every single public plant this city has sprouted, a few beautiful events have happened in my life. Amidst future home hunting and doing more grown up things, my birthday came and solidified my age and actions were becoming appropriate.

Woke up to these on my bedside my birthday morning. Blooming beauties.


Weather wise was again SUPERB. Having a birthday in the spring can be hit or miss with fabulous sunshine or a down pour. This year the weather was in my favor. 
I had family time where we ate so much rice, and a honkin huge piece of steak with my man.
Some recent photos of my life that week.


And lasssstly but not at all leastly, something that happened semi recently that will probably occupy my mind for the next year with events and coordination.


Picture me one incredibly happy lil lady! ^^

Hoping everyone had a fantastic weekend and hope this happiness train continues through the season!!

*All photos were taken with the iphone*
