Well I had a birthday last week. It was a big one. I turned 30. Now, having a birthday in January doesn’t give me a lot of time to dwell on it, so it tends to come and go without too much notice. This year we celebrated with friends over a home-cooked meal and a bottle of wine while our girls wreaked havoc on their moving boxes in the next room.
It’s amazing how much has changed in the past 5 years (nonetheless 10!) … I’ll spare you all the gritty details of my past, but it elates me to say that I am now, the happiest I’ve been in my life. This year, Chris and I will be celebrating 5 years together (and close to 15 of serious crushing) and our munchkin’s 3rd birthday. Definitely good things too look forward to.
note: I feel I should clarify that I seemed to be the only one who forgot about my birthday. I received lots of calls and well wishing messages that day (and even a beautiful hand made cable knit beret in the mail).
