31

Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while.
Groucho Marx


For a while I had a love/hate relationship with my birthday.
Loving presents and going out to dinner...
hating getting older and time going by.

This year I like my birthday.
I like how it feels.

Sitting on the couch with a baby climbing my back.
She was just licking my shoulder and giggling.

Drinking warm coffee and opening an email from my husband.
Email he sent from the other end of the couch announcing my birthday present.

It feels easy, relaxed and a little messy.
And good...
It feels good to be me right now.

Happy Birthday! Mine is tomorrow, and judging from the fact that both Lizzy and Justin have been sick tonight, I'd be thrilled just not to be cleaning up puke all day, lol!

Happy Birthday, Nessa! I love how you often make us wonder...your blog is like a gift in wrapping paper, and you view it with wonder, and you can't wait to open it, yet you never quite know what's in the box.
