Thank you for making my birthday magical.
I still can't believe I am 38 years old.
Time is flying by and I want to be better about enjoying every moment.
Some days, it is so easy to let the moments slip by.
A while back Daniel and I purchased this Love Always banner from Fun Cult.
It hasn't found a permanent place in our home yet but it is hanging casually in our living room to remind us to love one another.
The phrase, Love Always, seems so simple and small but goodness, it is so important.
I am taking it on as my motto for my 38th year.
My wish is for my home (our little bubble in Alabama) will be a place of sanctuary for us.
My sweet sister Annie flew out from California for my birthday.
Her gesture meant so much to me.
(She spoiled me big time with all sorts of fun sister goodness)
Having her here reminded me of how wonderful it is to have family near.
Some days I wish I didn't have to live so far from home and family.
Roscoe has changed everything for me.
Even the way I celebrate my birthday.
We spent my birthday eating fancy cupcakes and playing at the park.
It was perfect.
My boys make me want to be a better person.
I want to create a magical place for them to feel Love Always.
While it takes work and growth, I think I can make it happen.
I think we can all do things everyday to show our friends and family that we love them.
I am going to spend this year trying to figure out how to be better about it.
My sister Buffy really surprised me for my birthday and I felt so loved.
She had a vintage feed sack quilt top that I found at an estate sale quilted for me.
She even hand bound it.
(Bono Baby is modeling with it above).
This birthday has been an eye opener for me.
Our moments are precious and life goes by way to fast.
I am excited about my new year to grow and learn to Love Always and enjoy the little things and moments.
(Like watching my little man enjoying a summer storm on our back porch)
Thank you for helping me grow.
I am lucky to have so many great examples of love in my world.
