The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
~ Oprah Winfrey
Well, I certainly don’t have it all together. I’m still working on stuff…daily. Struggling and fumbling along the way.
But I gotta say, I sure scored in the husband department.
These photos are from my recent birthday celebration. The boys were so excited to surprise me. The rule was: under no circumstances could I come down to the basement. While the boys were busy building this birthday cake present masterpiece out of boxes, I took baby Grayson to the grocery store (which is always a treat just going with ONE kid) and then to mommy/baby yoga (which is so comforting and relaxing).
I took a nap in the afternoon (which is always heaven).
And made enchiladas for a small party with my family. All I really wanted this year for my birthday was a quiet evening with my family, eating good food and playing games. It was awesome. The boys could not contain themselves – pure joy and excitement. So they pulled me downstairs first to reveal this amazing gift. Or gifts rather. 39 presents for my 39th year. Isn’t that the sweetest?
And not only were the presents awesome, like a new journal, a smash book, coffee mugs…but each box had a note from the boys and my husband sharing what they love most about me.
I truly felt showered with love!
It was a birthday I will never forget. One full of love, fun and abundance – for sure.
And the birthday celebrations have continued, for my husband and my oldest, who turned 6 today!
This is YOUR one life…celebrate your breath.
Celebrate the ones you love.
Because YOU and your life are worth celebrating.

Now that the birthday celebrations are just about over, I’ll be turning my attention to Inside Out.
