 I’ve had a lot to celebrate over the past several weeks. My depression has been almost non-existent since I spent a good portion of the summer between the homes of my daughter and son-in-law, my friend Luis, and my friends Vivian and Alan (who just celebrated 25 years of marriage!) I was one of the witnesses at their civil ceremony all those years ago, and was thrilled to share in their anniversary festivities.

The party happened to fall on my birthday, so not only did I get a shout out at the party, but Vivi and Alan took me to Medieval Times in Lyndhurst the following week as a birthday gift. Loved it!

I also finished my review of Lexa’s soon to be released book, Bloodwalker – and it was amazing! Creepy, thrilling, engrossing, you name it. You can read the review I left on my other blog lilicasplace .

I’m heading out this weekend again, but I’m taking my computer with me, so I’ll try doing better with my postings. Don’t know when I’ll be home, but I’ve got a lot of cool plans. Stay tuned!

Best of all, I’m STILL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS!! Yeah, Baby!!

What have you celebrated this week or this summer? I need to catch up!  🙂





About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Glad you have such great things to celebrate Eva. 🙂


  2. Now that’s how you celebrate a birthday! Medieval Times is fun, isn’t it? Nothing like eating with your hands while watching knights battle.

  3. That looks like the perfect way to celebrate! Glad you had such a great time. I’ve always thought something like the Medieval Times would be tons of fun, but haven’t made anything like it yet.

    It’s wonderful to hear you’re free of depression along with having such a great time visiting friends and relatives. Happy Birthday to you! Love the pics! When I lived in NY, I heard abut Medieval Times a lot. I bet it was a blast! And thank you a lot for the review of Bloodwalker and the shout-out. Much appreciated! 🙂

    • I appreciate that, Lexa. I haven’t felt this good in a while, although I wish the pain days were a little less. Baby steps, I guess. I highly recommend MT if you’re into that kind of thing.

      No thanks needed for the shoutout; the book was amazing. Love ya! Eva
