I know I know: it seems like the past 5 years I've thrown myself a pity party for my birthday every February -- unless we were in Mexico. But this year, I don't know what it is. Maybe because we've had so much sunshine all month and it hasn't felt like February, maybe I don't need to give myself any pity. Maybe I've just grown up. But there's no pity party. And it's my birthday. And while we were walking on the beach earlier this morning it was overcast, today is February 26th and the sun is out in Cannon Beach, Oregon, and it's beautiful!
