Thirty-Seven Years Young

My favorite day of the year has come and gone. I'm officially thirty-seven now!

I am extra aware of events in this year of firsts, and so I did something different for this birthday. I arranged a rare night off for myself, and threw myself a party this past Saturday. My family, friends, soccer boys, and my lovely daughters sang me happy birthday... which is all I really wanted. I had a great night. 

Yesterday (the official date), I celebrated with a movie, a nap, and a nice dinner out. 

Tony and I learned that you make your own happiness, and I was certainly able to make some over the past few days. We also learned that we have some of the best people around in our support group, and they are what made my birthday special. 

So I'll borrow a few words from John Lennon to sum up my birthday message

"I get by with a little help from my friends"

"Count your age by friend, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears."

A HUGE thank you to everyone who celebrated with me and sent me birthday cheer!

The girls and I getting ready for the party. Cora doesn't look like my child at all!


  1. I'll make as many of your birthdays as I can!

  2. I was thinking of you and Tony tonight, so I thought I'd visit the blog and look who's here! I didn't realize you were still writing! I've enjoyed spending time with you these past months, and I hope you'll continue to come into the shop even though your project is done. Happy belated birthday and merry Christmas!
