Charmed, I'm Sure

What a glorious Birthday Month! I'm so grateful that Neighbor Teri and I declared June to be our coming-out of sorts. Highlights include, but are not limited to: interviewing for my perfect job, First Friday, meeting Wasabi Boy, gardening with Katrina, the Birthday-Solstice-Birthday Bash, my birthday and finally being offered my perfect job. I feel like a new woman. Any optimism I felt approaching my annual age change has grown exponentially as the days and weeks of June have passed. I can see clearly that my life and all of its components are not falling into place, but being strategically arranged, promising my future will be nothing short of phenomenal.

Onto a seemingly different subject, those of you paying close attention might know that in my eclectic wardrobe of shoes, clothing and jewelry, the only constant in my daily attire is my charm bracelet. I began building it after my trip to Portland last May as a concrete (okay, sterling silver) representation of myself. It has slowly graduated to embody some of the most important parts of my life and I treasure it more than my diamond ring (I'm more of a ruby girl, but that's not the point here. . .) A few days ago I realized that a new charm to celebrate this momentous month was in order. So to BlueMud I went. Among the thousands of charms, I found this gem. I'm so pleased with my struggle to break out of my past and this will stand to remind me just how far I've come -- and yet have a good deal of growth ahead. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again. . .what a charmed life I lead!
