Thirty Five

I turned 35 yesterday. What a shocker. Nachos gave me a later than usual wake-up time as her birthday present to me. And the girls all got together last night to do a combo celebration of sorts. The only sad thing was that Hubby was in Milan yesterday and just got back this morning.

All in all it was a good day. I really enjoyed spending the evening with the girls. It really was a send off dinner for May Heart who is moving to the States, but we made it a joint celebration for Shy and my birthdays, Pam's pregnancy, all the belated birthdays, Mayapapaya's husband's new job, and anything else we could think of.

It's gatherings like that that makes me so happy I've met the individual girls who make up the Thursday group. Although we don't get to meet every Thursday anymore, at least we still know we're all there for each other and its always an extra treat when we are complete. We've all told each other when we've each moved on to different parts of the world years down the line that we'll take turns hosting our gatherings at least once a year. I'm definitely hoping we'll make the effort to make that happen in the future.

I look forward to this year as a 35 year old. I'm thankful for everything I have. I feel blessed to have such a wonderful and loving husband and 2 healthy and happy kids. I eagerly look forward to what lies ahead in the coming year.
