The day was spent with family and friends...sitting around the table laughing, eating, telling stories, more laughing, and enjoying each others' company. It was truly the perfect birthday. The kind I remember from my youth. The kind I've been searching for in my adult life.
I have great memories of birthdays from my childhood. I don't remember the gifts. They weren't important. But I DO remember the filling of our apartment or house with family, friends, food, and fun...a true celebration. Just like today.
And...soon...this shall be the room we fill with family, friends, food, and fun.
Yes, Happy Birthday to me!
The Olympics are closing and my sweater isn't finished. But, we've done SO much during these Olympics that will forever be captured in my memory. My house is sold and now we will only be homeless for a few hours.
That's right! Happy Birthday to me! Our new home in one short month!!! Time for new life!
The best part, it'll be mine...all mine...to be shared with my two wonderful girls and all the family and friends that manage to find their way through our front (or back) door
Happy Birthday to me!
