Last Wednesday was my 26th birthday, I was so tremendously bless with a weeklong celebration that it seem ungrateful to not blog about it. My life has been blessed with so many outstanding individuals because of their generosity and love I literally enjoyed a week long birthday.
One of the best things about my birthday is that I share my special month with my niece, Elizabeth. Elizabeth was born a few days before my birthday. I must admit that at first I was uneasy about sharing my birth month with another family member but it has been wonderful. Sharing our birthday has become one of my favorite parts about my birthday. It has created a special bond between the two of us that only I am privileged to have with her. I usually make an effort to plan something special for her and I to do but with this year’s crazy schedule it just wasn’t feasible. Instead we enjoyed a fabulous dinner together yesterday evening. My oldest niece prepared a fantastic dinner for the two of us! We had a wonderful meal together and some mustache silliness!
My favorite part of this year’s birthday shenanigans was my birthday surprise. Wade was out of town for almost 2 months. I was kind of disappointed that I would spend another birthday apart from him. Last Sunday, I received the best birthday surprise anyone could ask for, he came home!!! Wade and I have been together since we were 16 and have barely separated since. This was the longest stretch of time we have ever experienced apart, it was really difficult but his surprise arrival made it a very memorable birthday!
