Yesterday was my 35th birthday. Up until my actual birthday, this one was bothering me for some reason. I was OK with thirty, but thirty five? For some reason I was having a tough time with it in the weeks leading up to the actual day. I woke up yesterday morning, looked in the mirror, and without thinking about it at all "You're thirty five" came out of my mouth and a big smile spread across my face. Right then I knew I was going to be OK. I'm happy with where I am in my life right now. I'm not always comfortable in my own skin, but I'm slowly getting there. I'm learning to get over old fears. I think I feel more "grown up" than I ever have.
I spent my birthday at my cousin's wedding in Vermont, and it was one of the best times I have had in a very long time. The girls spent the night at my in-laws', and my husband and I danced until midnight, as did my sister, my brother, and several extended family members. It was a fantastic time and I couldn't think of a better way to have spent my birthday.
Don't forget that It's My Party and I'll Craft if I Want To starts first thing Monday morning. Amy and I will be celebrating our birthdays all week long. The week will wrap up with an amazing giveaway on each of our blogs, so make sure you come back and join in the fun.
