Today is my birthday and we have a little tradition in our family. For each of our birthdays, we take the day off, from school or from work. The kids stayed home from school today, and my husband didn't go to work until late afternoon. The birthday person always decides what we do for the day as well. My choice was to be in nature. I love going for a hike and being surrounded by nature, its smells, its colours, and its sounds.
