Anyways... I had a wonderful birthday this past weekend. I woke up to two voicemails, the first one being my beautiful niece, Keegan, singing Happy Birthday to me. Followed by my lovely father singing to me (its tradition since I was a little girl). I could help but smile. I then was greeted by my husband with coffee, bagels, and flowers... what a thoughtful one I have! :)
I was fortunate enough to spend my birthday with my parents as well! They came up for the night! It was wonderful. My mom and I did a little shopping and then we ended the night at Muffaletta, a restaurant in St. Paul that is one of my favorites. I was so happy that my parents were able to come, especially my Dad, as he has one of the busiest work schedules I know! So sweet of them.
It was a very relaxing, fun weekend. I was grateful to be surrounded by my 3 biggest fans, and supporters.
To me this weekend I hit a milestone. I try to not be gloomy, or morbid. But I will be completely honest, at my last year's birthday I knew there was a possibility that I wouldn't make it to 27. Chris thought this as well. So... we celebrated this birthday!
I can honestly say that my outlook on life after this birthday is a lot brighter. I have added some goals to my plate and I officially know that I will make it to my 28th. But, that doesn't shrug the fact that one thing I have learned is that with each birthday I will NEVER look at it as another year older. No, instead I will look at it as another year LIVED...
