On the eve of my 32nd birthday...

On the eve of my 32nd birthday...

I did not wear any make up.

I took Aiden to the park and walked through the creek looking for buffalo. (Toddlers are hilarious)

I wore a t-shirt that said "Mama All Day Everyday" and didn't change out of it after being spit up on.

I made my silliest faces to get my baby to giggle.

I played on the floor with both my boys and thought to myself how blessed I am to watch them grow.

I did 3 loads of laundry (and folded none of it).

I danced around the kitchen to Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling." wearing Alder in my ring sling as I cooked dinner (*note to 32 year old self: I am way better at multitasking now than ever before)

I watched my toddler laugh hysterically at Winnie the Pooh as he watched it for the first time.

I read books to both boys, prayed over them, sang Jesus loves Me and kissed each of them goodnight.

I rewatched an old episode of Parenthood and cried.

I talked to my Mom on the phone.

I kissed my husband goodnight and he told me how happy he was to be by my side as I get old, to take care of me and watch me as a Mama. (Bless that man)

I smiled really big laying in bed thinking of all my blessings in my (almost) 32 years of life and how I wouldn't trade this life of mine for anything.
