Has it really been a whole week since my last post?!
I've been busy.
Busy with life.
Busy with love.
Busy with emotions running wild.
Busy turning 29.
I could write and write and write. About deep stuff. About the 4,276 emotions that have made their way into my past week. But, not today. Soon.
Today, I want to concentrate on all that is good. All that is beautiful. All that I have to be thankful for.
And what better way to do so, than with photos.
Keepin' it sweet and simple and letting the pictures do the talking.
I can't forget the ones that didn't make it to last week's posts, before getting to the celebration pics...
There was dinner at Kurt and Kelly's house. Complete with 5 or 6 rounds of Scattergories.
Before this photo/game... The letter - "L". The topic - Terms of endearment. Me - (thinking to myself, "OH yea, I'm gonna snag 2 points for this one with my 2 "L" word") My answer - "Love Letter"
Kelly begins her signature cry laugh, looks at me and says sarcastically, "What?!! How is that a term of endearment?! Oh, my little love letter!" *more cry laughter
Me - "OHHHHHHH, hahahahahahahaha that's what terms of endearment means???!"
As always, Steve shakes head.
My Dad and Brigid had a picnic...
We had friends over for dinner and games...
There was lunch with friends. Sweet little girls meeting for the first time.
and that concludes the pre-celebration photos.
And so begins all that made "29" Beautiful.
It all began with this cake.
Kelly showed up at my door with this unbelievably sweet, homemade, creative crazy cat lady cake. Complete with pictures of my precious fluffies and I, and even a peacock feather (love!)
Of course, I cried.
We headed to the shop downstairs for some fun.
We found ourselves acting like children in the corner of the shop, after we found these super cool glasses.
There was dinner with my family...
After, there was present opening and coffee at my Mom's.
There was a kitty card that "Meowed" the Happy Birthday song to me. My Mom said to listen to it anytime I need a laugh or want to distract myself from too much thinking. :)
There was a crazy cat lady pillow.
There was a snoring Mr. on the couch.
There was a Saturday morning visit from Noah. Who only had 3 cat photo holders to play with at our house. We named them Ted, Melinda and Belinda.
There was Saturday night fun and dancing with friends. There was letting loose and feeling free for a night.
There were Sunday morning muffins, cards and flowers from Steve on my birthday.
There was a Muffin lovin' the tissue paper!
There was a visit @ my Mom and Nani's house.
There were gorgeous flowers and a touching card from friends, left for me to find on my doorstep.
Muffin, stopping to take a whiff.
There were burritos. Yummy hot sauces. Salsa and Guacamole.
Steve making his selections.
There was a visit to our old stomping ground from years ago. There were drinks at a familiar table and great conversation into the night.
There was a goodnight hug from Twinkie.
There was a surprise "day after birthday" with the Mr. He took the day off and we spent all day and night together.
There was sushi. Really, really good sushi.
There was pottery painting. Such therapy. So peaceful.
It was a birthday of many feelings...
There were tears of many kinds.
It is the best feeling.
To feel it so greatly.
That is something to be truly grateful for.
*looking forward to more celebrating with two very special girls tomorrow night <3
Wishing Everyone A Wonderful Wednesday!
