Birthdays aren’t a super big deal around here. We’re pretty boring about them… maybe dinner out or drinks with friends. If we’re really going to do something, it’ll be a trip somewhere or some kind of experience. Our birthdays are just a few weeks apart, so if we do it, we do it well. And if we don’t, we don’t really do it at all!
I think because getting older hasn’t been such a big deal for me, the celebration of it didn’t need to be a big deal. Thirty was hard. And weird, because I’d never really cared how old I was. But thirty seemed, well, like a clear mark in time. Thirty was big. And I was torn on what to do, I never figured it out, so we did nothing. But 32 feels like just another day. Although, 32 does feel big in that it will be a big year for us, the year our family grows into three. And that feels enormous. Perhaps we’ll spend it building shelves in her room
This year will be pretty low-key… a quiet weekend since Chris has been on the road for the last week. A little socializing, a little sleeping in, maybe some cake (because what’s a birthday without a little cake!) and taking in our final celebrations before it’s no longer just about us anymore. Before we’re going to start celebrating birthdays hard… with parties and bounce houses and super amazing fun times.
In other news, my friend Heidi Ryder and I took a little photo field trip out to see the almond blossoms. She snapped a few photos of me and I’m really hard in love with them. That girl, she’s the best.
