Oct. 1 & 2nd is a busy day for my family, particularly my parents. My sisters have back to back birthdays and they are 3 years apart. If you ask middle sister, she says she was jipped a birthday because she didn’t get one due to the busyness of the baby sister being born. Baby sister will complain that growing up she didn’t get her own birthday because she had to share it with middle sister. Now that I am a parent and understand the meaning of the special day my child was born and how much joy I take in making it special for them, man it must have been tough to have to celebrate two back to back and make it meaningful for each.
Monday night, Ben and I partied like rockstars with my family and actually stayed out until 11pm! We were so tired the next day. A gal from our church family was so kind to sleep over and watch over my little ones because they aren’t quite ready to party like rockstars. I can’t believe my baby sister is 21! So weird! It feels just like yesterday that I turned 21, except when I did, I didn’t spend it with my family (or Ben) because I was way across the ocean traveling through Italy with my BFF and some other friends. Middle sister turned 24 and we didn’t see her this year because now she is married and was spending the day with her husband. I love my sisters and thank God for giving them another year!
Now that their birthdays are done, I am excited for my birthday! Mine is on November 3rd and I love birthdays! I still give my parents wish lists and I love the little surprises Ben does. Thus, the countdown in our homes begins. Finally got around to narrowing the tons of photos I took on Glow’s first birthday, so will be sharing that this week!
This week’s learned and links…
Soul is an adventurer. This girl has no fear.
True finally smiled for picture day at school. Only because everyone cleared the room and let me behind the camera.
True and Brave love sweeping. I am going to milk it for as long as the helpful hearts lasts.
This party is getting me excited for the holidays.

The end of this week finally feels like Fall! Yippee! The forecast finally has cooler days ahead and I am pretty jazzed about it. The girls have spent the last couple mornings outside and our walks to the park will resume (and hopefully happen a lot this season). This week will be busier than normal because my best (guy) friend is getting married and there is lots of wedding prep to do! Ack!
