Happy Birthday to me!

May 7th 1988 I made my entrance. My mom's water broke while working at the family business.  25 years later, I was sitting behind the desk at the family business. Things come full circle folks.

This year Chris's grandma was having hip replacement surgery, so I worked and he spent the day at the hospital.

My sissy Sara stepped in to make my day awesome. She knows about my obsession with office supplies and got me an amazing notebook and some super cute pens to use for my Bible study. I was ecstatic. I am a nerd at heart. Don't judge. 

Oh and I have already lost the pink pen. I was distraught and it triggered a whole OCD episode. That's a different story for a different day. 


Then Chris decided to be super sweet and posted a super sweet message.


Did I mention I got married on my birthday? He only has to remember 1 day. Lucky, lucky man. 

Sissy Sara knows that a true southern woman has red velvet cake for her birthday celebration and she brought me an amazing one. I may or may not have had 2 pieces. 

Chris picked me up from work and we watched his cousin play baseball. It was a super close and exciting game! They lost though. Oops.

When I got home that evening, these amazing chairs and pillows were waiting on my porch. Thanks Mama! I plan on painting my porch black to make them pop.


We finished the evening picking flowers that randomly grew in my horses field. 

It was a perfect day and I was reminded that I am blessed. A happy birthday to me!

May 7th is my birthday as well! I always loved having it there because there wasn't really anything else in the yearly calendar to draw my attention. ;)

Ohh Happy Birthday! I wish I had known...I would have sent you a card (which, I'm failing horribly at. I'm sorry I've only gotten one card to you--you'll get another next week. Promise!)
