I am feeling so dang happy, healthy and blessed to turn 33 today! No really, I have never, ever been more thankful to be healthy — for my whole family to be healthy actually. It’s something we don’t take for granted around here. And I know it sounds so cliche, but I feel so abundantly blessed right now that I’m actually struggling with how to enjoy it. Isn’t that weird? For years and years we’ve lived under a constant dark cloud of stress and sadness and I don’t know how to operate under normal conditions now. So my wish for this next year is to stop trying to brace myself for the next trial to come and instead lean in to my blessings.
For my birthday, the fam surprised me with gorgeous flowers from my favorite florist, a blow out gift card and Caroline quadruple wrapped (and used a whole roll of tape) on her gift to me — some sharpies from my marker bucket and paper from my craft bin so we could color together (her favorite thing to do right now), as well as mini ziploc bag filled with chocolate. Well done, Caroline. Well done! Matt has a big surprise in store for me this weekend that I have been trying to figure out for over a month. I’m terrified it might be a puppy. Now tell me where I can get ALL the free stuff today?! First up, Starbucks…
Happiest birthday! Cheers to good health and happiness!!

Happy Birthday!! Hope the rest of your day continues to be special!!
For such a young person, you have endured more than your share of personal and family health issues with grace and humility. All the best for a healthy future for all! I have my annual mammogram next week and make myself sick with worry waiting for the results —which is a total waste of energy. Hugs from Waco!
Wishing you the HAPPIEST of birthdays!!! What a wonderful day to start the next year-thankful, thoughtful and HAPPY!!! 🙂 All the best to you and your deliciously, adorable family!! 🙂 P.S. I am secretly wishing that you get a puppy/pet. My shelter dog has been a HUGE blessing to my family!! xoxo
