A little souvenir I found today. This photo is from my birthday trip to San Francisco last year. It was a beautiful day sailing out into the sunset with my mom who had also just celebrated her birthday a few days earlier. This trip was a little birthday trip for the two of us!

The sunset before this moment was immaculate(see here) and I watched as the sky changed before my eyes from golden to this creamy pastel over the Golden gate bridge.

Also, one of the sweetest things happened right after I took this photo: I heard the band downstairs singing a Happy Birthday song and I thought, “oh, how wonderful, it’s someone else’s birthday too!” (There were at least 120 people on the boat) and then, suddenly, I heard the band dedicate the birthday song to me!! I thought I was hearing things until I walked into the room and the band greeted me and they, along with the other smiling faces in the room, wished me a happy birthday again. Apparently, one of the captains on the boat had heard me tell someone I was in town for my birthday and waited around long enough to also hear me mention my name as I greeted and introduced myself to other travelers on the cruise. He told the band about me and asked them to surprise me with a birthday song. It was the sweetest thing ever and the best way to start off an already amazing birthday weekend. Of course, I asked the band to do me a favor and sing happy birthday one more time this time  to my mom who was also taken by surprise!
