Today is Ukraine's birthday, and last week was mine. (Tomorrow is my father's. Happy birthday, Dad!) This birthday was a big one for me. I'm 40! But I also have felt like I'm celebrating being alive and well. It is so good, and I am so thankful!
Since Jaan and Raia were gone all of last week, we actually celebrated early, before they left. (They were at South Point youth festival. There are lots of photos here, especially if you click through on where it says linktree.) Will ordered a bunch of lavender plants for me. He thought they were small pots and was surprised by the huge box. I was just surprised and happy in general. They smell wonderful.

Raia made an amazing watercolour in her trademark style:
Ready to send:
