It’s my Birthday!

Today is my 35th birthday, I’m officially in my mid thirties. I’ve never concerned myself TOO much with the number, haven’t felt too much sadness about getting old—yet! I feel young, and that’s all that matters, right? I’ve always loved my birthday, it’s my one special day, and I like celebrating, and I think everyone should feel the same.

I had a fun idea to do a giveaway for my birthday, so asked my good friend and photographer, Jennifer Polson, to take some pics of me with balloons and confetti, then we ended up doing a whole bunch of other stuff in the shoot (check out her blog today to see her fave pics of our session). Why not share my 35 year old shoot with you all? Then…the 7 giveaways…

There were a lot of pics, so I asked my handsome hubby to pick out his favorites, this is what he chose:

balloons birthdayΒ  confetti

camera

cookies jump

I often take my kids on a small shopping spree on my birthday each year, I deprive myself of the joy ofΒ  buying them all the latest and greatest all year long (even their birthdays, I do the parties and that’s all) except Christmas I indulge. So I see my birthday as a time to make ME happy by getting them a little something…a little Christmas in July. They like this idea, too.

Today, I’m going to give some gifts to YOU!! Because it’s 7-7, I’m going to select 7 winners, check out the fabulous prizes below from some of my favorite companies!

    Hey Kristen! Oh my goodness – what an amazing giveaway. I would definitely most love to win a Jo Totes bag (aren’t they beautiful?!) and a Skype session with YOU! I’ve just started my own photography business, it’s a passion that I’ve only just recently discovered this year. I’ve mostly done portraits up until this point, and I have my very first engagement session booked for a few weeks from now!! I cannot wait! Anyway, a Skype session with an experienced professional photographer is most definitely the ultimate win. For that reason – I’d love to be winner #5. Thank you for an amazing giveaway – and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
