#2 of the challenge.Today is my birthday! I was told repeatedly that my parents drove on bumpy roads to make it happen before the new year. I was stubborn I guess. So with New Year's and a birthday so close, I am doubly thankful and reflective as I start the new year. This came from a photo taken by my (amazing artist) friend, Linda Whitehead. I took wild liberties, because I couldn't begin to capture the essence of her photo. Thanks, Linda!
