Oh boy 35!

Today is my 35th birthday. To be honest I can't believe I am 35. Turning 30, which feels like just yesterday, really freaked me out. And here I am 35. Which I definitely don't feel like I should be. The odd part is that 30 and beyond has been the best part of my life thus far. I am older and wiser and feel more confident in myself. I have a great husband and good friends and family that loves me and a wonderful little boy. Lots of people do a list of things to do before they turn another year older. I contemplated a list of that sort but I couldn't come up with 35 things I wanted to do. At least things of significance. So I decided on a list of 35 things I am thankful for. I'm going to have Morgan take my picture later today and then I will do a layout about the 35 things with the picture. It's my way of letting go of the number and embracing all of what my life has brought and what the experiences of it have taught me and appreciating all that I have.

Here are a couple of pictures from previous birthdays. My mom had one of my 18th birthday. I forgot to bring it home with me though. But I had to look at the number on the birthday cake to determine how old I was! I thought I looked about 13.

This was my 4th or 5th birthday. I can't tell for sure. But I know there are little gnomes on that cake!
