The day I was born. TODAY!! Can you feel my excitement?
Although it feels like I should be celebrating my Mom and Dad instead, since you know, THEY did all the work 🙂
What a Happy Birthday so far! Can’t wait for all the rest that comes.
Started out by walking around Greenlake, because the day was beautiful and gorgeous and sunshine-y and warm. And the kids were perfect. Even when the little guy was crying because he just didn’t know whether he wanted a snack in the stroller or to continue scooting…perfect because he was acting exactly like a 2 year old should. And it was wonderful.
Saw 4 Herons. Four!!! And one was saluting the sun. Taking in life.
BIG smile on my face.
Got to celebrate with a fancy date night with my love (see the picture – I even got a cupcake, in a cupcake shop!! My favourite kinda fancy.) With my favourite still-makes-me-smile date.
BAM: Birthday Table!
This has been a tradition since I was a little girl. One that I have carried with me my entire life. My grandmother started it, followed by my mom and now I do it for my kids (and they do it for me…with a little help) The idea is you wake up to a table: of all your cards and presents and a few of your favourite treats to start the day right.
Even though it wasn’t exactly on my birthday (it all went down yesterday) The balloons and streamers were still up this morning when the kids woke me up. And I got snuggles in bed. And it was perfect. (Is there any other way to have a birthday? Or any day?) Even got a candle in my oatmeal. Yes, my husband rocks (he had to leave to catch a plane an hour later).
So I’m signing off now. The kids are playing nicely and I think I’ll join them. I believe a cake has just been pulled out of their oven for me. With pink icing even (I am told.)
Happy happy happy.
I love birthdays.
