I turned 35 on Saturday the 2nd, and we started the day off right with cake. Yes, same cake, new year.
Remember last year I did it with Wes and he dropped an egg on the floor and it was kind of frustrating? This year I did it myself in phases at night. It just worked better because of more days in preschool and Madeline’s schedule. I kind of missed him! Dropped egg and all! Oh, life! We ate that cake for breakfast all the way through Tuesday!
Sean and I got a date night in Saturday night. We hadn’t been on a date since New Orleans and so we were ready! We had one set of plans that really needed good weather to work. It seems as though the rain will not stop here! So we switched plans at the very last minute and it worked out so well!
Sean ended up with a beef carpaccio appetizer the size of his head!
And I got sushi which made me so happy. Sean doesn’t like sushi so we never go for sushi. I might have a craving now and I’m not sure how I’ll solve that problem.
That’s it for pictures. In some ways I’m still getting back into the habit of telling the story. I personally think the story is a little better with pictures, but sometimes it’s hard to take the pictures when you’re busy living the moment.
It was a good birthday, but I’m feeling a little sad about birthdays this year. This is the first year where I’m feeling…different, weird, older, I’m not quite sure about my age. This year Wes will be 4 and that’s very much a wow age for me. I’ve never been unhappy to see him get a little older and now I’m like whoa! 4! What’s next, college? And Madeline completes our family and so our last child who will have a 1st birthday, which is more bittersweet than I imagined. I can’t wait for children to turn 1 normally. So I guess what I’m saying is 35 is the first official year when life started to move to quickly. And it feels weird.
