Today I begin another year of life! Birthdays have always been a big deal in my family. You were able to choose what we had from breakfast and dinner, and many times we were able to skip school and do whatever we pleased. Being the birthday kid also allowed us a waiver from all chores on that day. Maybe we were a little bit spoiled. As I get older I appreciate the ritual of celebrating the passage of another year. I still like to make a big deal of my birthday. I think just thinking that you have one day a year to yourself can make that day special and have positive thoughts for the day.
Jonah sent me flowers at work this year....

I'm hoping to spend some time considering all I've learned in the last year. There have been quite a few life changing moment, including getting married. I do have to say that I'm much happier on this far end of my 20s.
