My Birthday

At the beginning of August I turned 32. 32 is a rather nondescript birthday. No special fanfare, no big hurrahs. But there was something about this birthday that made me sad. I don't know that I've figured out exactly what it was, but I cried off and on all day on my birthday. I don't know if, after all these years, I finally figured out that the world really did not stop because it was my special day. Or maybe it was the fact that I worked for almost 9 hours that day trying to decorate a preschool room. OR, just maybe it was that my first born was starting Kindergarten the next day. Whatever it was effected me in ways I was not prepared for.

But as I've learned, the show must go on. And on it went. At the end of the week Erik and I went with my sister and her husband and our friends the Williams to Benihana for a fun dinner. I had such a great time and it definately made up for a "sad" birthday.

The girls and I eat my favorite birthday cake. Angel Food with strawberries and cream.
