Time to celebrate and a calendar giveaway!

Well, today around 4:00pm I’m going to be 38 year old! Last birthday was really good…My parents where here and I got engaged. This year I'll be celebrating with a husband a new family! It's amazing to see how much your life can change in a year, right?.
In general lines it’s going to be a whole celebration weekend because tomorrow is my 8 year anniversary in US! (8 years??? Are you kidding me??? When this happen??) and believe it or not I’m kind of excited to watch the Playoff football games. Well… I’m “kind” of excited because my favorites teams didn’t make it (sniff, sniff) but football is always a good excuse to have fun ;)

And because it’s my birthday, I’ll spend it doing one of my favorites things: PAINTING!

Do you want to celebrate with me?
Tell me what are you planning to do this weekend and you will participate on my 2011 Calendar giveaway! Yeahhh :) This is an 8.5 x 11 calendar and each page have one of my birds ;) (you can see more of the calendar here)

The Birds wall calendar

I’ll announce the winner on Monday January 17.
Come and celebrate my birthday weekend!

Happy Birthday, Valentina!

I'm hosting a poetry workshop here at my house, which is honestly a dream come true. In addition to writing poems together, we'll EAT good food: I'm making ginger carrot soup and my best scones, a great big spinach salad with pears & pepitas, and two kinds of cookies for dessert.

So I'll be celebrating your birthday in a creative, delicious dazzle!

Enjoy your day, Valentina!

There are not many birds here in Canada right now because it is winter...the temperature is -20 C / 4 F(brrr - very cold)and snow is forecasted, so I am going to bundle up and take a walk in the softly falling snow &I'll think of you celebrating and send good vibes!

Hiking in the woods with my dad. King Cake and strong hot coffee with my husband. Soft blanket snuggles with my boy. Soup to my hurting friend. Painting with our new watercolor pencils. Walking in the misty rain. Being thankful that I am here on this great big globe.

También mi lengua materna es el español así que ni me esfuerzo por escribirte algo que tenga sentido en ingles porque no escribo muy bien hehe
this weekend limpié y limpié como desesperada un cuarto para que mi niño de 4años pueda jugar ahi y me comí a besos a mi niña de 4 meses
fui a la iglesia, cocíné y escribí. Me encantó leerte y ver tu creatividad, Dios te dio un don increible.
Bendiciones desde méxico y pueblo colorado
