Another Year Older & Wiser

First of all, I hope that all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!! I think we all deserve a day with a little extra praise and thanksgiving. Being a Mom might be the most rewarding job on the planet, but it's also the most challenging. So whether it was a chance to sleep in, a day of pampering, a special dinner, chocolate & roses... I hope your Mother's Day was amazing.

Mine definitely was. My Husband gave me exactly what my heart needed. And that was the freedom to to whatever I wanted, with no expectations. I got to roll out of bed at 8:00 (which is sleeping in for me!), spend the morning with my kids and Husband, soak up some beautiful sunny weather, and then enjoy a special dinner with just my sister & my Mom. I felt totally content all day!

And this morning? I woke up another year older. THIRTY TWO. I am 32 Years Old now. So weird. I remember when I used to think that being in your 30's was old. But now that I'm living in my thirties, I have never felt better, and never been happier! It's true what they say, things do get better with age :-)

^^ Here's a photo of me and my Husband and I on Saturday night. We went out to Palisade for dinner to celebrate my birthday, it was so freaking yummy. It sits right on the Marina in Elliott Bay and has such a gorgeous view! After dinner, we drove to Kerry Park to watch the sunset. The view of Seattle is exceptional!

I'm actually really looking forward more Birthday's! Bring it on!

So, cheers to another year of getting older, wiser, and happier! :)
