sunday was my 43rd birthday and normally my birthday month is a nonstop swoop of activity but this year it has been anything but.
i think the fact that i have pared down the amount of events that i attend in general has somewhat contributed to the fact that i have been so low key and oddly, i like it.
usually it's let's go, let's go because living in a place like Chicago, there is always something to do but other than working, i have been spending a lot more of my time home, quiet, reflecting, working on creative ideas.
so when, my honey took me on a lil birthday excursion to the chicago botanic garden to indulge in two of my passions, nature and photography, it felt perfectly right.
i was amazed to find that the chicago botanic garden consists of 385 acres!! we took a tram tour to get a real feel for it. it's incredible. i can't wait to go back.
being so early in spring, the gardens are in between season but it was a brisk but lovely sunny day.
the other day my honey and i went to see think like a man (enjoyed it) and while in the bathroom my iphone, which is always in my hand or nearby, fell into a sink full of water (side eye to showplace icon for the backed up sink!)
of course i grabbed it immediately and started performing cell CPR, trying to dry it out but the damage was done...
the home button obviously got water in it and the first day, the voice control command just kept popping up randomly but eventually it stopped and my phone seemed to be back to normal until yesterday when it started doing this..
MY PHONE IS POSSESSED!
i can't even use it because it wont stop jumping from screen to screen...
hopefully this shop that i am going to take it to can fix it without breaking my pockets.
