It’s my birthday, yipeeee!
I’ve always loved my birthday, even as an adult, I want it to be special, celebrated, and I try to encourage all my friends (who think they are too old to feel special) that it is important to enjoy that one day each year. Last year, I posted a bunch of pictures of my birthdays celebrations through the years, so check it out for some vintage fun.
I’ve been quite self reflective lately. I’m constantly in check, trying my hardest to be the best mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister I can be…while also fulfilling my creative outlets which in a big part encompasses what I do on this blog. I love the idea that through what I share, I can also impact others whether its from my weight lost post, or a TV cover we built. I know how much countless of other bloggers have inspired me and affected how I think and do things, and I’m honored to be a part of that for others…but sometimes it takes over too much of my thoughts. I have to give myself “electronic time” just like me kids.
I don’t like to give into the facebook birthday bit where everyone comes out of the woodwork to just say the token “happy birthday” but if I do take the time to write something, I like to make it meaningful, a memory of what sticks out to me from that person…a funny story or memory. Think about that next time you write “happy birthday” on someone’s facebook wall…take a few extra seconds to say why that person makes you smile.
So today, on my birthday, indulge me a little. I’d love to hear from you on how something I posted on this here bloggy blog has affected you. Whether it be something personal I shared from my ramblings, a recipe that has become a part of your repertoire, photography tips that have helped improve how you shoot, or parties. Tell me about the project(s) that STICKS OUT in your mind that inspired you. It helps me know how to best move forward, and it makes me happy to hear;)
