Birthday and Perseids Meteor Shower


Has another year really come and gone?  

Last year, Mr. P and I went to Carpinteria for my birthday and saw the Milky Way Galaxy.  This year, we went to the desert to look at the Perseids meteor shower.

Did we see them?  Yes, sir!  Mr. P tallied the count to over 2 dozen.  Then he read that if we had gone higher up in elevation, we would have seen about 100/hour.  So, next year, if we're lucky enough, we're going to do the whole camping expedition and see 100/hour!

Of course, we also saw the fantastic Milky Way Galaxy again, which looked 15 times larger than the Milky Way Galaxy we saw last year.  I did take a picture...


....but wouldn't you know, iPhones just don't capture stars in an almost pitch black environment.  :-/

Regardless, I feel so blessed!

Oh, by the way, top picture is my birthday FOTD.  I do have NYX false lashes on, that don't show up too well under the monolids.  Hrmmm......

For foundation, I don't have anything on except that Garnier under-eye roller thing with a little bit of tint.  Check out my July Skincare Routine post for the exact product.  

The improved condition of my skin in is a result of the Ann Karen facials.  Seriously, I'm developing a dependency issue with Ann Karen Spa!

Did anyone else see the Perseids Meteor Shower?

Have a great one!

@Gummy Thank you so much! It really put in perspective how small we are and how lucky we are to be alive in this vast universe. I didn't have cake but I did have a rack of lamb with mint jelly. My first time ever!! :-)
