My Birthday

Today was my Birthday!! Or well, now I guess I should say yesterday was my birthday.  It's been a wonderful birthday week already.  Yes, I said week, not day as I like to celebrate my birthday for an extended period. haha I actually like to celebrate the entire month if possible!  I love receiving phone calls from friends and family that I might not get to talk to as often as I would like.  I love reading the sweet notes written on birthday cards.  And of course the presents and cake aren't too shabby either! But above all, it's wonderful to spend TIME with loved ones to celebrate!  I've been lucky to have my mom with me all of this week, and I'm actually leaving to go back to Colorado with her for a few days as she lives there now.  We've had such a great time just hanging out and chatting, and I'm already going to miss her like crazy when I come back home and she's no longer here, but I'll be grateful for the time we've spent together! I miss her so much!!  Unfortunately, I've been sick the last couple of days, so I feel like we didn't get to do as much out and about, but maybe it's a blessing that we've just been able to lounge around together - I feel like we rarely give ourselves the opportunity to do that. 

This past year was amazing! I'm married to a wonderful man, and my life is blessed in so many ways.  Hope the next year is even better!  Here's to the last year of my twenties...
