Happy Birthday to Me!

I blame it on being an only child & an only grandchild on my mother’s side- I love my birthday.


For so many reasons:

My loved ones making me feel special.

The ability to eat cake & not feel guilty.

An excuse to dress up & look pretty.

Presents (I have to honest)

And simply the excuse to spend some time with my family, husband, & closest friends at various “events”.

{Because really, who doesn’t deserve a birthday month?!}

It also now has another special meaning to me- my grandfather, whom I was very close to, passed away on my 23rd birthday. I was lucky enough to spend the day with him & even celebrate my birthday a bit, including giving me a last birthday card that means so much to me.

Every year its a good reminder to remember how loved I was in my childhood & how lucky I am to have such wonderful family & friends surrounding me.

So while I’m out celebrating me (such an only child thing to say!) I’m happy to remember my past birthdays & look forward to my future ones.

Because 29 is looking pretty good.

{Just don’t ask me about this next year- that might be the year I have an age crisis!}

    I’m never been a huge fan of birthdays and they usually pass in my family without much notice other than a cake and a few gifts. After reading your post it is likely at least partly due to have a huge family. I am the oldest of 4 children, my mom has 6 siblings and my dad has 8. So there are dozens of cousins.

    I am glad you got to spend that special time with your grandfather before he passed away.
