Today I celebrated my 42nd birthday. My husband reminded me that as per The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 42 is "The Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything." That seems auspicious doesn't it? I am in a flurry of last minute packing for a trip back home, but here's a glimpse of my magical day!

 I highly recommend Austin, TX for celebrating a birthday!

One of my favorite ways to mark a special occasion is to walk the labyrinth.

At lunch we shared a Leveler: Murphy's Sout, a shot of espresso, and chocolate syrup!

  3. Hmm ... I guess I missed my answers!

    Love seeing your day ... and such memories of you and your man ("that cafe guy") ... A Leveler? Ooo perhaps THAT is what was missing from my 42 year epiphany!

  4. I love Austin! This looked like a beautiful birthday!

  5. Hi, Angela! When I read the Hitchhiker's Guide (as a teenager, I suppose), I thought it was so funny that I have used the number 42 for a lot of things (in pin numbers, for instance). Of course, back then, I couldn't imagine actually BEING 42. And yet, here I am. I hope that your most auspicious year is a wonderful one! Thanks for the photos too. Beautiful.

  6. A Leveler! What a great way to complete the Labyrinth. I love watching your journey unfold, sister. You are an extraordinary and gifted creature to behold.
