a birthday of firsts

Today is my birthday and this year there are a lot of firsts happening for me.

This is the first year in 34 years that I did not get a birthday card from my Granny.  I know it may sound funny, but I was going through a weird deal of being excited to get a card from my Papaw, but dreading opening it and not seeing her name.  This morning, like clockwork, the card came from “Lawrence” 🙂 …. It was a sweet card with a sweet note and I love it, but I will admit… that was a hard one.


Secondly, this year I have a new person to share my birthday with.  I woke up to him singing Happy Birthday to me.  He has been such a special addition to my life and I am so happy to have him be a part of my day! The pic below is from our first flight together – i know, i know – getting cheesy!


Finally – this isn’t new, but tonight is dinner with my parents 🙂  We are trying a new restaurant (so I guess that is a first).  I love our tradition, will miss my sister, but can’t wait to spend this time with my family.


As I turn 34 – DANG… 34… I realize that age is just a number.  I am exactly where I am supposed to be at this point in my life and couldn’t be happier!
