101/365... I love my birthday joy

I had the perfect birthday.

A kiss good morning. Beautiful weather. Time to myself. A family picnic on our patio. A Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet!! Numerous emails, facebook posts, texts, and voicemails. A nice chat with my grandma from Tennessee. Hubby making birthday cupcakes with our oldest two. Lots of hugs and kisses. Flipping through photography magazines at the book store. Lasagna dinner at mom's. An after dinner walk. Pink cake. Generous gifts and keeper cards. My son's bedtime prayer thanking God for me and my birthday. A kiss goodnight.

I love my birthday.

I love my birthday joy.


There were so many details about today that I was so deeply touched by. My mom had this banner hanging outside her house between her blooming weeping crab apple trees.

No matter how old I am, mom always knows how to make my birthday extra special.
