I am totally not above telling everyone its my birthday!! Why not??
So far it is a very relaxed day here, my daughter kept me up all night and now she is sleeping soundly... so when she wakes up, my Dad and I (and she) will go out to brunch! I just can't wake a sleeping baby, even on my birthday!
So, while I wait, here are some things I want to do before my next birthday:
-Learn how to crochet & knit
-Start watercolor painting again
-Clean out my storage locker
-Plan for the future
-Visit my extended family and stay in contact
-Take a dance class
-Reclaim my indentity
-Finish my scrapbooks
-Paint unpainted furniture
-Remember other people's birthdays
-Cook more, especially vegan
-Have a job (I wish etsy counted, but it doesn't)
Taking a look back, this year has definitely been the most life-changing year of my life! Of course it was, because I had a child! But a year ago today I never would have seen myself here. NEVER. Last year if you had told me that in a year I would get pregnant, break up with my boyfriend, leave Milwaukee, leave all my friends, give up dancing, move in with my parents and have my baby, I would have asked for some of what you were smoking. (Except maybe for the boyfriend part, because I wasn't happy with him even then.) But now here I am! And I am sooooo much better than I was last year. I am so thankful for everything that has happened because it was all meant to be!
(If you want to give me a really great present, I'd love some more followers!)
