Happy Birthday, Sarah!! It's Sarahday!

Because we love to play with ©Lite-Brite
I could go into a whole story about when Sarah was born but it reminds me too much of the day I realized that showing her birth photos to people wasn't really as delightful as I originally thought. I have no idea how many people saw crotch shots extremely intimate photos of me before that realization dawned, but I can tell you it was too many. Let's just say, I'm really glad she was born and is here on the planet with me. 

Sarah on the farm in California, her new home. So long, Portland! 
Taurus is the zodiac sign of a person born on this day. Emerald is the modern birthstone for this month. Sapphire is the mystical birthstone from Tibetan origin that dates back over a thousand years. (who knew? I've been giving you emeralds all these years!)
Dragon is the mythical animal and Fire is the element for a person born on this day if we consider the very old art of Chinese astrology.

Taurus the bull, dragon and fire, dancing on sapphires. This is the year of change for sure, birthday child of mine. From the city to the country, I'll get to do one stop son and Sarah visiting now.  I can't wait!

And because I love you so much, I'm going to name this little melon after you. It has made it through attacks of birds, iguanas and drought. Small but hardy, adaptable. The Sarahloupe. I know, love runs deep. Don't cry.

If we were together, I'd bake you this cake. Since I'm not, you'll just have to imagine how good it would be (being together WITH the cake that we'd let Peri bake for us).

Have a Sarahlicious Saturday! Do something splendidly satisfying.
