Why not a Birthday Blog : )?

Birthday’s are something we are all familiar with. We all have one every year whether we like it or not.

I choose to embrace mine and sometimes I even celebrate in different cities because my best friend has chosen to NOT  live in mine. This was strategic on her part I am certain so that I am then forced to go visit her and have another birthday celebration … YAY!!

The first memory I have is the one with me putting up the number 2 (not the peace sign) and every year they just kept on coming so I decided at a very early age to just embrace them. It was always a day full of countless cousins, presents, cake and the must have PINATA.

My mom was the oldest of 13 children,my dad the youngest of 7 and together they only had ME. I feel they overcompensated for my lack of siblings but looking back ….that was quite alright : )).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JOSIE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

Some years were better than others but I can at least look back at my childhood and youth and know that my parents,family and friends cared enough to make me feel a little extra special on my day.

I have tried to do the same with my daughters by trying to use the same ingredients, love, laughter and family.

Blow out the candles,make a wish and hope that it comes true. Age is just a number that you should never let define you.

The only problem with blowing out my candles now, is that I have to take a deeper breath….YEP!!!!

Today we celebrated my granddaughter’s 4th birthday and although I may not physically be that pigtailed little girl……….I know the feeling : ). I am blessed today to know that I have done my best to give her some of the same memories and I don’t just look forward to mine but my entire family’s!
