I know it's been a long time since I posted here. I've been posting on Mikey's Caring Bridge site but that's been all about Mikey... I need a place to be about me. And what better day to start that than my birthday?
The way we celebrate changes too. We start by celebrating with just our families then we have family and a few friends when we are really little then we graduate to classmate parties and then we have friends parties, then comes the 'co-ed' parties and then we have crazy nights out and then all of a sudden you find yourself saying 'I really don't want to have to cook on my own birthday' so you go out to dinner with a few friends. Yet, even after that really nice dinner celebration with friends you find yourself saying, cake with family is the best part.
The celebration I am most looking forward to though is this afternoon. K has a 1/2 day of school and Matt is coming to the house in between jobs and we are going to have lunch. Just the 5 of us. I am so happy to have that. It doesn't happen often.
