It Arrived & Guess What? It's Not A Bad Thing!


Yes, today it arrived: my 50th birthday. 
Can't say I mind...


And why would I? Spending it at a place like this! 


Indian Springs in Calistoga. I spent my 35th here, so figured it was about time I come back!

A mud bath, massage, bike ride, pool time and dinner are on the agenda. 
A pretty good way to start off a new decade...
