Meanies be damned

It's mama's birthday today.
No time to fret over not fitting in or playing second fiddle to a cell phone.
I have three beautiful girls.
Last night I heard Finley's laugh for the first time and it was pure magic.
Coffee was waiting for me this am.
I am married to my best friend (and resident coffee maker and deliverer of lattes and designs.)
I love my job.
It's sunny.
My house is clean.

Today I am 35 and happy.

Happy sigh.

Happy, happy birthday to the most beautiful and amazing Amanda. May this year, with a full family and an open horizon, be your best year yet.

Happy Birthday, Amanda. Hope it's a glorious day for you.

Screw those neighbors. And fitting in is way overrated.

OMG 35, what a perfect age! And I am being totally serious! Looking at it from my vantage point now I would seriously have appreciated how hot I still was if I had had a clue. :)

Enjoy your hotness and your family on your birthday!

Happy Birthday! 35 was a good year for me, although I still have to stop and think about my age (wait...what? I'm not 26? since when?). I hope your day featured a lot of giggles and grins and a nice big hunk of cake.

hey I'm 35 tomorrow and I'm thrilled! The older I get the more me I get and the more I accept me the happier I get. I'm so much happier than I used to be - I learned to appreciate the minutiae.
