Hello 37


Well, it's here...my birthday, or birthday month as my husband likes to say...
Ok, so I like to celebrate...
what's wrong with that???

 It's always been a special day for me...
I've always thought about my birthday in a happy way...
It's a day to feel special, eat pink cupcakes for breakfast, truffles for dessert, maybe take a hot bubble bath, definitely snooze a bit longer, and
have lunch with someone you love... I'm having lunch with my mom today!

Lucky me!

 It's a day to SHINE!
and celebrate life, be thankful and grateful and hopeful for the future!

I'm celebrating and embracing my age today...I am so glad to be ALIVE!

Maybe it's your birthday, or someone you love is celebrating their special day...
make a wish and blow out the candles! And wish them happiness!

And please check out this wonderful blog post by Julia Christie...
It's a great post about age, and embracing our 'outer child'
and I have printed it out and have it hanging on my desk!

So today, even though I am one year older, I am going to have dessert for breakfast, do cartwheels on my front lawn, swing on a swing, play hide and go seek, color with chalk on the driveway,
and simply....enjoy the day!


I hope you enjoy your day, too!
Heather
