I think this is officially the year that I become a decade-“something”. I’ve loved birthdays from the beginning of time and this one felt amazing. I’m happy and content and confident and quite possibly on the brink of some major change (more to come) and it all just feels RIGHT. (As evidence of the aforementioned “confidence”, here’s a solo pic of ME. HA! I’ve had it hidden on my computer because it seems so odd to not only pose for but then share something like this. <3)
Now, on to my day. At some point along the ways birthdays changed from being all about the gifts to all about the food. These boys got up bright and early and took me to Waffle House as the sun was coming up.
My dear friend P cleared her schedule and tooled around town with me all.day.long. It’s my fave tradition with her. All the deets on our day to come real soon, if you haven’t been following our adventures on Instastories already!
I played games with the boys and sat outside until the sun started setting. We pretended like there wasn’t a such thing as homework and tests for just one day.
I cleaned my oven for the first time in… um… 8 years. I’m always up for a new adventure. :-)
And Honey treated me out to a real date night to cap off the evening. We always celebrate birthdays with the littles so this was unexpected and wonderful. He figured we got off the hook with that by celebrating as a family over breakfast :-)
I’m just a smidge away from finishing up my 40×41 bucket list. I’m now calling it the 40x41ish bucket list. I can give myself a little grace on the timeline.
So, as I sit here wrapping up my night, I feel grateful and loved and so incredibly happy. Thank you to ALL who called, texted, messaged, wrote and commented. Every single one brought a smile to my face.
