B is for Birthdays #atozchallenge

B is for BIRTHDAYS!

It’s the first Monday in April – how are you doing? We finally have slightly warmer weather in Maine, above freezing at least. The sun has been out most of the day, and the snow is melting … again … after our April Fool’s Day snowstorm.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge this month, posting on a topic each day except Sundays (excluding the final Sunday this month) for each letter of the alphabet.

Today’s topic is

B is for BIRTHDAYS!

If you follow my blog and are subscribed to receive blog posts, you may have noticed I missed posting the last few days of March. Here’s what happened: I had multiple deadlines with freelance work, and after not having work or income for about four months, I was quite happy to invest the necessary time into my work! (B is also for BUSINESS!) 😉  I also celebrated my 59th birthday on March 29th.

Then TODAY is my middle daughter Jen’s 30th birthday!

So What About You?

 

Do you or someone you know celebrate a birthday this month? If so, Happy Birthday! 🙂

 

Have you ever tried blogging from A to Z?

    Happy belated birthday! Good for you in taking the A-Z Challenge. I did it last year but was too late this year to think about a theme. I’m 60 in August so looking forward to that. Look forward to reading the rest of your A-Z. Have a great day!
