Today is my 33rd birthday. YAY! I’m a big girl now. Last night I was at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and saw a 33 for a player and had to take a picture, I thought it was so appropriate for me and this birthday. So first let me give you a quick update on my 33 in 33 for 33 list. I did not finish but I’m definitely going to keep going.

The ones I still have left are really things that cost me money or were delayed due to the hurricane. So I think I can still complete them in the next month.
I love celebrating birthdays (mine and others). I don’t worry about getting older, I’m happy that I’m still here and that I am surrounded by such great friends and family (you blog readers are included in that list of friends too). I love my birthday because it reminds me that 33 years ago I was born into this really great family that has loved and supported me from the moment they knew I would be joining their family.
I am a really lucky woman and this is going to be a really fantastic birthday.
I hope you have a wonderful day too 🙂
