Today I turned 37

Even as I write it I can't believe it's true. How did I ever get to be 37? Must have been the same way I came to have 2 little people living in my house calling me mommy. Being an adult is strange. When do you start feeling like one? Anyway. Today I'm 37. Other than turning a year older, it was a very lovely day.

Bryce took me out for a wonderful dinner last night. The restaurant itself was gorgeous and romantic, cozy and special. It was in an old barn and had a vaulted wooden ceiling. I was reminded of the barn we got married in. It was decorated with huge silver candelabras. It was amazing. The food was great too. I had sole. I started with an aperitif of champagne splashed with mirabelle brandy. {Insert contented sigh.}

Today I got to sleep in. I awoke to frantic squeals of "don't come down yet!" The girls were writing my cards. Around noon we went to an arts and crafts fair (called a Hobby Maart) and finished the day on the St. Nicolas Train.

In between all that I received calls from my mom and sister and enjoyed some birthday cake. The girls were bursting with excitement about the cake - "It has macarons on it!!!" Yes, other than the aging part, the day was lovely indeed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I am 26 soon to be 27, and I feel the same way I have two little people and a third on the way I still feel like I am playing house and the parents will be home soon or something lol. I definitely don't feel all grown up yet, I was wondering the other day when I will feel grown up.... but after reading your post I think I will have wrinkles on my face and be saying where did the time go, and when did they start saying great grandma!! Congrats on having another birthday, may the lord bless you and keep you safe always!!
