Sweet Sixteenth (of October)

Today my Facebook wall was bombarded with loving wellwishes, I got to eat an embarrassing array of junk food, and Ryan brought over his guitar for a live performance of Happy Birthday. This may have been my best birthday ever. Quiet. Unapologetic. I got to take a nap.

My little Sweetie and the Hubs and I are all fighting off colds, so it was a rough night last night. The baby was snotty and congested and we spent part of the night rocking in the rocking chair so she could breathe. Despite the stuffy nose, you can see that she was her usual precious self.

So we spent the day at home. Ordered take-out, watched Netflix. I swept the kitchen. And it was everything I thought it could be.

Mom and Dad, thank you so much for being amazing parents for the last 31 years. Friends, family, & students, thank you for making my life richer and for never failing to remind me that you care. K & B, thank you for spending today with me doing absolutely nothing special - it was special to me.


  1. I'm glad you had such a great birthday. Sounds awesome. Hugs.

  2. MMMM. Sounds like a perfect day to me, maybe minus the colds. I can't wait to just have lazy, quite days with Eric. I'm glad your birthday was special. Love you!
