So, my 33rd year is coming to an end and soon I will be 34. Tuesday is my birthday and I am excited to celebrate this weekend with my best friend Meg and her daughter Leona Faye, as well as with my husband Dan. The girls arrive this evening from Jersey and I can’t wait. It really sucks not being able to see your bff as much as you would like to. Every couple of months she visits, even though Jersey is right next door. With her being a busy Mom and life keeping me busy as well, its just hard to get together more often.

I plan to relax with my girls and have a nice weekend together. On my actual birthday, Dan and I just plan to have an early dinner. Nothing crazy. It’s funny how time really flies by. As the years pass, I am even more thankful for the things I have and the people in my life that I love. And even though there always seems to be something that stresses me out or tries to bring me down, I rise above and make the best out of what is given to me. I am very excited to see what this next year holds.

I thought it would be appropriate to share a photo of myself on my 1st birthday. It was taken by my mother in Brooklyn, at my Uncle’s house. This is seriously one of my all time favorite photos of me of when I was a kid. And believe me, there are tons. All my mom and dad did was take pictures of me. It was a hot summer day and I was surely baring it all to stay cool. Regardless of the weather, I had my party hat on and was ready to go.

The next few days are a countdown to 34 years on this Earth. It’s great to see me at 1 and realize all I have accomplished and experienced up until now. To think I am still moving forward, beep beeping my way through life, truly makes me smile. Happy Birthday to me!
