thirty three

Today is my 33rd birthday! Time flies when your having fun. I have had an amazing year, of course with the usual ups & downs. But I know this year is going to be even better!

This morning, I received this quote from Simple Reminders and I needed it. I always have these HUGE expectations of what my birthday will be and a lot of times I am let down. My parents always made a HUGE deal out of my birthday as a child especially because it was so close to Christmas. As I have gotten older though, not everyone around me has grown up with the same birthday enthusiasm or it is just so close to Christmas. So, therefore every year, I have to remind myself to let go of the high expectations & just enjoy the day as it is.


I am blessed this morning to have some great friends at work and another close friend that made my morning brighter with a few gifts & flowers.  Feeling blessed & ready to start 33 with a bang!

  1. Happy Birthday Becky!!!! You are such an amazing lady. Praying you are blessed extra this year.

  2. Wow! What a wonderful year you had, Happy Birthday! May 33 be even more grand than 32! :)

  3. Happy Birthday! My husband's birthday is Jan. 11 and it is so hard to know what to get him right after Christmas. I still try to make it extra special, tho, but it is harder then if it'd be a different time of the year. Wow, you did A LOT this year and a lot of fun trips!! I did not know you got a tattoo, I wonder if I wasn't following you yet then? Cool!

    1. Thank you Carrie!! I got my tattoo in January!! I love it :)
