birthday adventure!


Today I turned 29!! I honestly feel more like 20 so I guess that's a good thing. Creed took me on the most amazing little birthday adventure ever! (I was lucky enough to have the day off!!!) We ventured out & went to the Butterfly Pavilion right outside of Boulder! It felt a little like heaven walking through the doors into the tropical butterfly habitat & seeing all the hundreds of butterflies fluttering around...my cheeks are still sore from smiling so much!!



It was such a magical day!! It also felt a little like "home" because it was soooo humid in there for the butterflies, it felt so similar to a nice hot, humid Georgia spring day! I also got to hold Rosie, the tarantula!!! That was a first for me & kinda fun, plus I got an "I held Rosie" sticker to prove it!! ha!

I am incredibly grateful & overwhelmingly happy that I have such an amazing partner in life, who loves adventures, even tiny ones, as much as me. I have such a happy happy heart! :) hugs & cheek pecks, Meghan

    1. LARISAA!!!!! Sorry, I just had to scream for a sec. The husband took a little VIDEO of the whole Rosie escapade & I SOOO almost posted it. She really wasn't that scary in person because she was so fuzzy, she looked much less spider-like. ha!! Thanks for all your birthday love! xoxo.

    1. Kym!!! haha, thanks for the birthday love! & yes, we can talk about the headband, it's my favorite & I'm so mad I didn't buy more when I had the chance. A handmade company named Teeny House Bunny made it, but unfortunately they don't anymore....I may try my hand at diy'ing some similar. I will let you know if I'm successful & share some with you! ;)

    3. As silly as it sounds, I've learned everything so far from youtube! :) Ukulele Mike is my favorite, old guy with a mustache, he breaks down the songs with the chords & will demonstrate the differing strums, etc. I learned Blue Moon from his video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjxhPpJQEZ0
