A Blessed Brunette Birthday!

May 11, 2015

Birthday tulips from my mom!
Nineteen years old! Where did the time go? (Thankfully) the last year my mom can refer to me as a "teeny bopper." Last year my birthday was on Mother's Day but this year my mom and I each got our own special days (not that I really cared about sharing)! I was spoiled with a massage in the morning and a fun dinner with my family at night.

I woke up to see a beautiful butterfly perched on my windowsill. Being that I rarely see butterflies, let alone such a big and beautiful one, I think its safe to say my grandmother (who passed away last month) wanted to send me a birthday present of her own!

Today reminded me why I love the phrase "treat everyone like its their birthday!" I was truly showered with love by my family and friends and if I didn't realize it before, today showed me how many people care about me and gave me so many reasons to be thankful for the blessings in my life.

It was so fun to have people I haven't spoken to in forever come out of the woodwork, sending me texts and Facebook messages-- who knew birthdays were such a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends?!

As if all this wasn't enough, I was treated with chocolate peanut butter cheesecake (my absolute favorite flavor!) for dessert!

Good day? Great day.

Celebrating with my sister
