A few birthday party photos from my iPhone and Instagram.
This year, for my birthday, which I also share with Christmas, Stephen kept asking me what I wanted for both. Normally, I have my list of those few key things I’ve been drooling over all year. Normally, I have those wants that aren’t needs but they sure would be nice to have. But this year, I drew a blank. I honestly couldn’t think of anything I wanted for Christmas or my birthday, because, honestly, this year, I felt so fulfilled. I felt so content. I felt so complete. I felt so grateful for all that I already have in my life. And I just didn’t neeeeeeed anything else really.
Yet, because of the amazing husband Stephen is to me, he still wanted to plan a birthday party with his sister while we were visiting her family for the holidays. So I let him, because, I’m never one to turn down an opportunity to eat cupcakes. Or wear a tiara.
With my birthday falling on Christmas, he planned the party for the following day. While I was locked me in our guestroom, outside, Stephen was in the kitchen and living room turning them into a pink Princess party. So what that I was turning 31, it’s never too late to be a Princess.
I came out of the room to a big SURPRISE from my new family including my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and their three adorable kiddos. It was a great night of lots of pink, lots of cupcakes, and lots of love. I couldn’t think of a more magical way to celebrate my birthday.
p.s. We’re still on holiday vacation until January 9, and will answer all emails when we are back in the office then!
