29 Today :)

Today is my birthday and I am 29. I remember turning 18 or 21 and thinking 29 and 30 seemed so far off. It got here much faster than I expected, but I feel no different. I am still my same juvenile, immature self (thank goodness).

I woke up this morning to my little man saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY loud and clear. In fact, I heard him throughout the morning practicing with his dad. Every time his bedroom door was open he thought it was time to yell out at me :) I got some cute cards and a gorgeous handmade necklace from my little sister. I already got my presents from everyone else. And even though Josh has to work, I will be spending the day with my pops and John with a date night to follow. I couldn't really ask for more on my birthday :)

I also just wanted to say that I have so many things to be thankful for. I feel very reflective this morning and I do just have so many wonderful gifts in my life.
1. I am thankful that I get to spend every day for the rest of my life with a man that I love inside and out. He makes me feels complete and he takes great care with the half of my heart that he carries inside of him.
2. I am thankful for a little boy who fills me with a love that I did not know could exist in this world. He made me a mother and the person that I am today.
3. I am thankful for the greatest family: Parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins that anyone could ever ask for. To grow up completely surrounded by love is the best gift any parent can ever present to a child.
4. I am thankful that I have a roof over my head and food in the fridge. There have been times lately that those things were all that we had, but it makes me appreciate life that much more.
5. I am thankful for this blog and all of the amazing people I have met as a result of it. Each and every one of you enrich my life.
6. I am just thankful to be a part of this world and to have the ability to affect change and to find my own way in life.

I will be back later tonight or maybe tomorrow with my 30 before 30 list.

Happy Saturday!!

    I'm with you on not feeling my age. I still think that I am 22 most of the time and then my friend Rrryan slaps me back into 27.
