Almost Wordless Wednesday...Birthday Time

Yesterday I celebrated my 34th birthday...yikes how did that happen?!!!  Since I turned 30, I have noticed a propensity to trying to ignore my birthday...on one hand I want my loved ones to have a huge celebration but this year I was just feeling....old.  I know pity party for one!!  Well getting home to my girls and husband the pity party ended!!  Em had decided to make me heart shaped cookies and a card.  My hubby had gone to get everything and even my favorite cake!  Facebook messages flooded in and it felt great to be so loved!!!  Some of the best comments were from unexpected places...places that reminded me that in the day to day grind of getting back into and staying in shape I need to remember to look up and see that I'm helping others...inspiring others.  So once all the family celebration was done and the girls were tucked into bed (well one at least) I headed down into my basement and had a celebration of life...of how far I've come in just 3 short months...and how far I've come in 34 years...to the place where I am meant to be (wrinkles and stretch marks included!!!)
3.4 miles for 34 years...complete with balloons

  5. Happy birthday sweet Nancy! I think everyone needs to celebrate their birthdays, especially moms, since we rarely celebrate ourselves. And it is hard not to enjoy your birthday with excited little kids. :) You look GREAT and I hope you had a wonderful day. Hugs!!!
