A year older

How is it already my birthday?! It feels like that with each baby we add to our family time speeds up even faster. I can’t believe I am 31 (yes I know *insert blushing face*) today! I like to think that with each year I am aging I am getting wiser and more confident in my own skin but unfortunately I still have a ways to go. I remember last year at this time feeling so anxious about turning 30 and no longer being in my 20’s but truth be told it feels exactly the same as turning 25 or 29. I guess the saying “You’re only as old as you feel” really is true. Some days I’ll admit I feel older than others but for the most part I still feel young. I always find it amazing how many people think I am super young… my entire teenage and college years people thought I was much older than I was and now people almost fall over when I tell them I have children. Speaking of my sweet little ones… I don’t think it would come as a surprise to you that the best thing that happened to me in the past year was my baby girl being born. Falling in love all over again and adding this sweet pea to my crew has made my mama’s heart grow and consumes┬áme with feelings of love and thankfulness.



I also feel like my birthday is sorta like New Years. It a new year of life! I am very aware how blessed I am to have reached the rip ole’ age of 31. Far too many to live this long anymore and I for one won’t be taking this next year for granted. I have set some goals and dreams out for myself much like I did at New Years and I am excited to work away at them. The gifts I am most thankful for this birthday is first off my husband and my babies. They are the sweetest blessings and the best things in my life. I am thankful for the new friendships I have made this past year and for new opportunities. But the best gift this birthday is signing the adoption papers for my sweet baby girl! God couldn’t have worked the timing out any better and I am just moved to tears when I think of all this means for us. So today I will be celebrating being the mommy of these 3 and feeling truly blessed for another day here on earth!
