Today I turned 36.
I worked all day, have hardly seen my husband all week thus far, and am in bed typing this by 9:30; however, you won't find this girl complaining. It was an amazing day. Sure there were ups and downs, serious frustrations, and let downs--those are all normal. Despite having a completely normal day, it was an amazing birthday!
The kids at summer camp were excited when they found out it was my birthday. A wonderfully kind friend brought by a couple cupcakes when she drove by and saw me at work. I DID get to spend time with my daughter and parents. And finally, Mitch took a break from painting at Trinity (where he's been after his workday every night this week) to go to dinner with us.
Sure there are more exotic ways which one can celebrate a birthday, but for me today was perfect.
I have so much to look forward to over the upcoming year and so many wonderful things to reflect on from the past year. I love birthdays and the reflection and anticipation they bring.
Let's go year 36! I'm excited to see what's ahead of me this year.
