I can't believe it but it is true. Last year on April 12 I fell in our apartment and broke my leg. I am just now getting along fine with my leg. I was beginning to wonder if it would ever heal but then I had to remind my self that I was not 25 anymore. My hubby and I will be taking a 2 day trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia as we had never been there before. That is the best way to celebrate my birthday!
