Today is my birthday, It's almost summer and what I liked least about school.

Yep, today is my 38th birthday. Not an exciting number, huh? Since it is I guess, my day I should probably get to write whatever I want, right?

Well, it just so happens that today is Mama Kat's writing workshop where ya link up and share. So my birthday actually ties into two of the prompts!! Woo-hoo for me!!! Okay, I was probably the only person expressing that sentiment.

Prompt #4: Technically, May is still spring in my neck of the woods, and so here is a picture that I think captures spring for our family. We should be in an Eddie Bauer catalog right?

 I had to share the above as one of many outtakes from our sweet boys we are so grateful for. They can be such turkeys.

Prompt #5
   I don't miss school much at all, but the one thing I miss the least about school is not getting to celebrate my birthday like everyone else. Back when I was in school, the last day was always the 21st or 22nd or about a week before Memorial Day. My day is today, the 24th. So I never got to have cake or treats or hear others sing the special song on my special day. Sure, the teacher was nice enough to include all of us misfit "summer" birthdays the last day of school, but it just didn't feel the same. 

Am I over it now? Of course. And turns out, once I hit middle school I loved that my birthday was after the last day of school because it meant it was summer and what a way to kick off the best time in a young person's life.

Before I go, I have to share this last picture of my one of my most memorable birthdays...a cake made with so much painstaking love that it makes me tear up. I have a wonderful hubby.

 I have been known to occasionally and naturally laugh like Scooby-Doo. I was turning 29 I believe in this photo.

  1. Happy Birthday! You look amazing- at least a decade younger than your age :) Hope you get spoiled a bit today by those handsome boys of yours.

    1. Your comment was super kind!!! And such a compliment. I am one who believes in growing old gracefully, but tastefully. Thank you so much!

  2. My bday is June 1st so I feel your pain!!!! Although my mom always seemed to pull something together for me. Your family is so adorable!

  3. Thank you so much for your comment! I answered it on my post but wanted to tell you here how much I appreciate your comment. Although I swear like a sailor and offend people regularly, I am a Christian and it would totally BLESS me (never offend me) if you prayed for me. I am touched that you offered!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! I just turned 40 in April and it isn't as horrible as I thought it would be. I imagined it to be filled with enough chocolate and tequila to kill a small rhino.

    Your family is beautiful!!! Enjoy your day!

  4. Happy birthday! Hope you have/have had a wonderful day.

    I know what you mean about not getting to celebrate birthdays at school: mine is June 4, and my son's is June 16, so neither of us ever experienced that.
