101/365... My 35th Birthday joy

I'm like a little kid when it comes to my birthday.

11 April -1

I count down the days. Balloons make me smile. I love presents and cards. I am thankful when others take some time to wish me a Happy Birthday. I look forward to eating my favorite meal and lighting the candles on the cake. I adore the extra hugs and kisses.

I love my birthday.

11 April -3

This birthday was no exception.

11 April -5

A kiss to start the day. An early morning balloon delivery. Great phone conversations with family who live far away and friends who live close by. A leisurely walk in the woods. A picnic lunch. Abundant sunshine when the forecast called for abundant clouds. A little cat nap. Thoughtful gifts. An overwhelming amount of love shown with texts and messages on facebook. My favorite food. A glass of wine. 13 pounds lighter than last year and healthier than I have felt in a long time. Lots of kisses to end the day.

11 April -6

It was a wonderful birthday.

11 April -7

I am so very blessed.

My birthday joy.
