You Say It's Your Birthday?

Well, it's my Birthday TOO!

Yes, that's right... today is my Birthday!

I was reminiscing last night about the days since my last birthday. The ups and downs of this previous year, the glorious moments filled with incredible wonder, excitement, abundant joy, and the moments when I struggled with severe doubts, overwhelming fears, uncertainty.

What will the new year bring... well, only time will tell. But I am forever hopeful about the future.

So to start this new year off right, I decided I would sleep late.

Enjoy a yummy piece of cake that my adorable husband baked for me.

Stop and smell the flowers.

Laugh louder and longer than I already do, making sure to smile a lot.and CELEBRATE this one wild and precious life!

My little boy turns 12(!) today! He's opting for the strawberry cake with funfetti icing. But yours looks good too. :)

Have a happy, happy birthday, Tracie!
