It has been a super busy weekend and day, today. So, to relax a little I stumbled upon the website Take Me Back. I’m big into numerology, astrology, and just finding the significance my birth date, birth place, culture and how it influences who I am today. I guess it boils down to my obsession with the nostalgic feeling of what was. 🙂
Here’s what was happening on the day I was born.
