Twenty Seven?

It’s true, I’m 27 now. A little shocking to type that number since I still feel like I’m… 12 16 18 21!

Saturday was my birthday and it started with coffee, fresh fruit, homemade blueberry cake…and presents!

z got me a lime green, silicone (BPA-free!) travel water dish for when we go out with Louis. I had been looking for one but didn’t like the ugly collapsible ones I was finding. I love it and so does Louis!

He also got me a super (super) generous gift card to Red Door Spa so I can get the massage I’ve been putting off for about a year…

After breakfast, we prepared all the goodies for lunch at my pop pop’s with the family! So happy that I could be with all three brothers, my only sister (in law), both parents, z, Louis, AND my almost 91-year old Pop Pop!

Amanda, Pop Pop and I!

…heck yes! It’s Mama Peas’ book! I dug in to it right away and have to say that in two days I read the whole thing! It is amazing. Congrats to Mama Pea and her beautiful family!


z, Louis and I hung out with Pop Pop for quite a while, listening to tons of awesome stories. I felt so blessed to be surrounded by my amazing family on my birthday. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the day!


We were pooped when we got home so we had a beer and z sang “Happy Birthday” to me with a candle in half a Klondike bar!


Perfect day! Have I mentioned how blessed I am??
