Something to Celebrate

Hello 29

Posted on: September 8, 2012

On August 3rd I celebrated my 29th Birthday.  My final year in my 20s but hey it’s okay, I still feel 16.  Except for the fact that I’ve had 3 miscarriages, 2 babies via natural childbirth, several jobs, shingles, & 4 wisdom teeth removed all in my 20s…wait, maybe I DO feel almost 30!  God has given me many blessings in my 20s though and I know He has even more plans for me in my 30s.  I am just thankful I am alive and well today!  I don’t want to miss a moment with my sweet family.

On my birthday I got to enjoy my first 1 hour massage since before Leia was born (only had to wait 4 months) as well as a fun family dinner complete with food from Maggiano’s and an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins.  The ice cream cake has begun to be a tradition for my birthdays.  It started last year and got me hooked I guess.  I mean, if chocolate ganache, Baskin Robbins ice cream and chocolate cake are wrong then I don’t wanna be right.  I think my love for ice cream cake started back in my TCU days when my two girlfriends Kim, Amanda and I decided to by ourselves one as our Valentine’s gift to ourselves since we were all single at the time.  We bought it at the Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins on “Scary Berry” and you know that’s a scary area when the ice cream cakes are chain locked up in the freezer case.  Seriously.  I’ll never forget digging into that cake and dancing around to Boyz II Men in our dorm…..wow, that dates me.  I really am almost 30 but I don’t care–I still love Boyz II Men 🙂

LOL! I totally relate to how eventful the 20’s were for me and yet how fast they flew! And *hugs* to you-I also had 3 miscarriages in my 20’s. 😦 BUT I also had 3 healthy babies! 🙂 Happy belated Birthday

Thanks for your comment Valerie! I’m so sorry you experienced 3 miscarriages as well–I find that every time I share this I find out that someone else has also experienced this kind of loss. No matter how common though it’s still tough. But so thankful God has blessed us with children on this earth!
