‘….happy birthday dear Mommy, happy birthday to you!’

Sunday marked another year ending and beginning in my life as a woman, wife, and mother 🙂  Many wonderful things filled the day including purple streamers hung all over the kitchen before I woke up by my dear daughter (with a little help from daddy but it was all her idea), angel food cake with fruit from my mother so we could celebrate with the kids before we dropped them off for an all day and overnight with grandma, and then lots of fun with just me and Eddie.  We had dinner out in Seattle and woke before sunrise on Monday to take some pictures I’ve had mulling around in my head for awhile.  We finished out with breakfast out together at a local place called ‘The Homestead’ (which was wonderful), before Eddie headed off to work and I went and picked up the kids from grandma.  It was all wonderful, a truly wonderful birthday!
