It’s My Birthday

So I wore a birthday dress.


Which is better than my birthday suit. And more decent.


I love this dress because just wearing it is like a party! Maybe it’s the peekaboo tulle. I had no ‘official’ party planned, but at our house and with my husband anything is a party!


We were walking through the parking lot—me carrying our two year old, my husband holding hands with our two older boys—on our way into Central Market for dinner at the outdoor café and play area, my husband said…

“It’s a princess party boys! We have our princess—“

and my six year old chimed in, “Yep! and we are her protecting knights.”


It was a perfect Princess Party at Central Market. There was even a band singing Beatles songs. Plus my prince charming of a husband “went to go check to see if our food was ready” and came back with a bouquet of pink tulips.


To think--

Today, a decade ago, I was turning a quarter of a century old and I woke up in my bed alone wondering what the next year had in store for me. That year, I chopped two feet of my hair off (a grown up haircut), became a published writer, and met my forever prince charming.


Now, today, I woke up to four boys in my bed giving me kisses and wishing me Happy Birthday! The best.


It’s hard getting older but it’s wonderful what I get along the way :)

Pin It!

Hey have you ever thought of doing a blog swap or maybe being a guest blogger? I am doing a hair week in June, over at Blissful and Domestic, and am looking for some guest bloggers. I wanted to be able to share some fun hair tips, hair style ideas, and some fun hair accessories. Let me know if you would be interested in being a guest blogger:>

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
