Well…Another day…Another Birthday To ME!!! Let’s see this is my fourth annual 29th birthday!?! Kidding, Kidding. I am the big 34 today and not too upset about it. I’m in a good place with it and the direction my life is going. Especially with family and my growing business. What better daily gift then to spend time watching my daughter learn and grow? Plus the blessing of following my passion and building my business each day. I remember turning 25 and THAT, I had a super hard time with. I think it was the whole “Quarter of a Century” part. Having your birthday number coincide with the term Century did not sit well. However, when 30 hit I was excited about the aspect of reaching this wonderful milestone. Of course at that time I had just lost over 50lbs and I was pumped about my new bod! Which of course didn’t last too long considering Josh and I were expecting our little peanut, Harper, within a month after my birthday! Guess that bod paid off! 😉
When I think back on past birthdays with my family they were always built on one thing. Being Together. Sharing a meal with my family usually brings laughs (lots of laughs), stories from the past, hearing about one another’s busy lives, and just plain simple love. We don’t always celebrate ON the exact day, yet we always make plans to sit down for a meal as a family to celebrate. For instance, my amazing parents are jet setting down in FL today so we already chatted about plans with them and my siblings for dinner next week. It’s never about the number or who’s birthday falls on a specific day. It is all about the love between us all and spending quality time together, especially when that time seems less and less with each of us running around with crazy schedules. I couldn’t be more thankful with the family I was born into and who I get to share my life with in my hubby and of course my awesome daughter!
