Day 166 – Birthday

17 Sep

Another birthday has come and gone (I still have the rest of the month right?) and for those of you that don’t know me I really like to celebrate me lol! I have never  understood people who get depressed on their birthdays or want to pretend like they don’t have any after a certain age. I will celebrate until I can’t get up to celebrate and then I will have a party anyway.

I usually do a big birthday extravaganza with all my out of town girls and we have had some serious fun in the past but this year was pretty low key. I spent it with my family and it was exactly what I needed. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of people that surround me.  We get together and it is comfortable, loving, and I always laugh. There isn’t anything in the world you can’t do with your family standing by you.

I got lots of goodies and lots of plants and flowers this year. Chris got me daisies, mom got be a pretty aloe plant, but my favorite has to be the Calla Lilies that Beth got me. It is my absolute favorite flower so I had to get a shot with my phone (oddly enough no one got out a camera the whole night) It was such a wonderful relaxing evening just being around the people I love and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.

I also want to thank all of you  for the birthday wishes on facebook, twitter, and all the wonderfully sweet text messages. I felt very loved today.

    Such a beautiful flower. How did you shoot (or edit) so that there is nothing else in the photo?
