Oh yeah, it was my birthday on Saturday. I am 31. I feel _________ about it. Still trying to fill in that blank... I guess I have a lot of emotions. A lot has happened for me this year, some really good and some really hard. I feel like I grew up a lot from 30 to 31 and some of those growing pains still ache from time to time. I'm hoping for a more peaceful next year.
David and I went to dinner on Friday night to celebrate. He is growing out his beard for me and I really love it. It has lots of red and bits of gray and I think he looks so handsome. I also think he's the greatest man ever. I really love him and our life together.
On Saturday, I slept in until 9:30 (!!!). David took the kids to pick up breakfast from Whole Foods (have you had their bacon?) and then we went to the gym and when we got home, the power was out. We had crazy storms and winds all day and the power was off for about 10 hours. We ended up driving to the mall in the afternoon and going to Chick-Fil-A with the kids for dinner. A birthday doesn't feel like a birthday to me without cake and candles. So, we stopped at Deru for a slice of carrot cake and a slice of peanut butter chocolate cake. I blew out my candle and opened my presents by candlelight and the boys thought it was very cool. It was a strange birthday but I'm glad I got to spend it with my favorite people on earth.
