So, normally I would never put a picture up on here like this of myself, but I just had to, because this is one of the few pictures I have of me and Kennedy, where neither of us are making really weird faces.
And, this is a post about my birthday. I have been dreading turning 27. I know to some, that is still young, but to me, it feels so old. Not just the number, but it is kind of a realization of how far I thought I would be in my life at this point. I've been thinking a lot about this the last 6 months or so. I really thought my life would be different. Some things I just didn't do, and some things are completely out of my control.
I really thought I would have children by now. In fact, I often think I should have a six year old, a four year old, a two year old, and a baby. Crazy huh? I know I can't control these things, but yet I still feel like I have been denied.
I don't usually write about my everyday thoughts on here, which is kind of weird. I never write about not having children, yet that is usually what's on my mind. I try to only write about the happy things that happen to me. So there you have it, a glimpse of what I think.
As I mentioned, I was dreading this birthday, but I actually think it was one of the best. Mike and I went down to Corona on Saturday, where we had a great party with my family. It was so much fun seeing everyone! Bre even put Kennedy in a special outfit for me! I got many thoughtful gifts, but having everyone there was more than a gift.
Sunday, we headed over to Riverside to celebrate Kevin's and my birthday. Again, it was so great! I cannot express how spoiled I felt this last weekend, and how loved I felt. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family on both sides. Thank you to everyone!
