Light the candles…

Like it or not, the day is here. This girl is officially another year older today. Truth be told though, I actually look forward to my birthday each year. Another year older surely beats the alternative, right?! Ha!

My family knows by now that as silly as it is(and I KNOW it’s pretty silly!), I kinda like a big fuss to be made about my birthday. I like a reason to get the whole family together, have a big meal and eat lots and lots of cake!

Do you like a big deal to be made about your birthdays or do you prefer to pretend they don’t exist?! ūüėČ I figure the time is coming soon when I won’t be so thrilled to celebrate them, but for the time being, I’m choosing to celebrate!

I’m hoping to get to my regular work out this morning with my lady friends at the gym¬†and then spend the rest of the day piddling around town. After that it’s getting homework done with the kiddos so we can get to the restaurant on time this evening for food, family and a little fun.

This past year has been a whirlwind of adventure for me! I stepped out of my comfort zone more times than I can count in 2016, which I’m very happy about. I had a blast meeting¬†so many amazing new friends, venturing to new places and watching our two boys blossom this year. Life really is fantastic, you guys, and I have been so very blessed with great friends and family in mine! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for this year!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday! XO

ps….I love this:

I am old but I am forever young at heart. We are always the same age inside. Know that you are the perfect age. Each year is special and precious, you can only live it once. Do not regret growing older, it’s a privilege denied to many.
