This week was my birthday week. I turned 36. Or as Julochka would say 24/12.
I have to say that this was the best birthday in a very very long time. I feel younger this week then I did four years ago when I had a newborn (and three toddlers). This birthday really was a celebration.
The sun was shining, the temps perfect, and my attitude was in check. I spent the day doing trivial if not annoying things : paying bills, delivery said bills around town and to the post, grocery shopping with my dad, cooking supper/enjoying supper with my family and my parents, and making (my own) cake (I chose to do this), cleaning up, etc. But, it was all just so lovely. I know part of that has to do with this new hobby (read- addiction) of mine, Blogging. Blogging has helped me put things into perspective and to find the beauty in everyday life again. I know I have said this before, but hear it again people it is my birthday week there for I can repeat myself!
I look forward to this next year and the increased freedom that will come with it as my children grow and my own self can be rediscovered. I am glad you are along for the ride.
side note - I know I am still terribly absent from your comment boxes. Please understand that the weather is perfect and that although real world people suck, the real world itself doesn't. I will be lapping up the sun and fun for the few short days we have it and again come January you will be sick of me :)
Happy belated birthday! I'll be 24/12 on Sunday and hope to have a frill-free fabulous day just like yours. Best wishes for a year full of self discovery, peace and growth.
Yaye! Happy birthday!!! All the best for the next year!
Yay! Happy Birthday :D :D :D
It sounds like it was a very non pressured birthday for you.
Sometimes sitting back and relaxing like that is the best thing.
Happy Happy Birthday to you! What a lovely post xxx I feel so happy to be blogging and, like you, it's a real sign that my children are getting a little older and I am out of those dark newborn, 2 under 2 days which I found very difficult.
People keep asking me if I'm going to have a third child.NO!!! I'm so happy to be where I am, blessed with my two beautiful children but that's enough.
I now have half of the things I need to make your prize BTW, the rest should be here either today or Monday. It will be a late birthday gift for you!
Thirty-six is, indeed, a perfect age. The dumbness of your twenties out of the way yet still so much life ahead. Enjoy these lovely days and your young kids ~ both are fleeting.
You are positively glowing in the pic! I'm so glad for you! Enjoy! love and kisses.
Sounds like a perfect Birthday. Enjoy your time..Kathi
Happy, happy 24/12 birthday!!! And ANOTHER photo of you! Amazing! I just got the hubby to take one of me the other day...first photo I haven't taken of myself since our wedding I think. Anyway, it's his birthday tomorrow so we'll be doing some celebrating too! Have a wonderful and lovely weekend. : )
happy belated birthday!!! you look great and very happy!!!
Happy birthday! That's a lovely photo!
You look very happy. I hope you are having a great summer. MN winter comes all too fast!
That was my deleted comment. Blogger messed up a bit and I had two comments.
Well you LOOK great in that picture... and the hardest thing about being a parent is trying to raise kids to help them find who they are while we are still TRUDGING along finding out who WE are! Love ya girl!
Happy birthday. A little bit late, sorry for that. Enjoy your summer.
