Hi Friends!

I just turned 55 years old and had a fabulous party at Kensington Metropolitan Park in Milford, Michigan with my human bestie, Pat Petroline, and many of my wildlife and barnyard friends. I enjoyed the photographs so much that I compiled them into a video slideshow featuring all the images from the day, set to the song, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.

I just love it and I hope you do too.

All my best to you, friends.

Sweet dreams.

    • Maxi – thank you for the kind wishes! I hope that you and your family get back to a healthy place soon. I wish you all the wonderful kindness and happiness that you’re always giving to me! Please take good care of your precious self, Maxi. xojulia

  9. Sorry to point to a typing error…it should be in your case “55 years young” and not “55 years old”..with best personal wishes, luck, success and good health. You are a great photographer and like your focus on the little ones in nature, reflects care and your sense of touch.

    • You are too kind. Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to share my birthday with me! Love to you! Yours…xoxojulia
