One Week From Today

One week from today will be another blissful reminder of the most special day of the year. What's that, you say? Why, MY BIRTHDAY! I'm the girl that will celebrate big ones (you know the specials - 30, 35, hell any one, if we're being honest) for a few months.

My 30th lasted 3 months. I LOVED it.

This year is a little ole birthday. Nothing BIG. No life changing happenings. Just a joyful feeling of being surrounded by those that I love. That would include YOU, my special blog loves.

Because you see, this past year, you have guided me. You've supported me. You've held me, even if in though. You've cheered me on. You had me at hello...wait, can't use that one.

You've stood beside me when I needed a hand and stood behind me to shove me forward if I'm not doing what needs to get done.

I so admire many of you. Sharing with us what you go though. I love your stories about the introduction of the idea of surrogate motherhood over dinner. You also shared with us wonderful ways to keep moving forward in that positive light towards good health.

I've learned that strength and perseverance can pay off. So many of you are hitting milestones and are showing progress in your goals.

In the year that has passed since my last birthday, my niece and nephew & myself and Mr. Uncle Potts have begun our own family traditions which involve glitter, icing, cookies & Christmas trees.
Quite the hit for them. They're already begging to do it again.

I've made new friends and lost a special one.

A great year, all in all.

Happy Thursday, y'all! It's almost FRIDAY!
And Friday means I'll be back on a plane heading home!

Happy (almost) birthday, sweet lady! I can't wait to hear all about it - I am sure Mr. Potts will wow you with a spectacular gift - or has he already given it to you, with the "we can hardly hold our surprises in!" excitement? :)

Miss & love!
