A Birthday Post






Normally for my birthday, I do a photo shoot. I really like them and it's kind of fun to see how I've changed over the past year. So I'll probably do a photo shoot soon, but it didn't quite happen this year. Scheduling... I think we all know how that goes. 

So instead I thought that I'd take you through my birthday day :) 

I had a hard a time figuring out what I wanted to do for my birthday. I always have a hard time figuring out what to do.  Especially since I knew that this year would be my last year without a baby. My last year that would be completely mine. 

A few days before my birthday I was dreaming about different things that I hoped for in my life. How I would live if I could live any way that I wanted. So, I decided that for my birthday I would live that life.



So I woke up, and read my scriptures. Then I went for a walk with Brian. I normally use my Charity Miles app, but this time I decided to leave my phone behind, so there are no pictures from the walk. It was just beautiful and nice to walk hand in hand with him.



I ate a croissant for breakfast and Brian made me a smoothie :) I thought about trying a smoothie bowl, but Brian wanted to make it for me, and I thought I wouldn't make it too complicated for him. It was the perfect breakfast. 




After he left for work I took a bath using my Lush bubble bar. I love baths. I love bubble baths. If I had my way, I would take baths once a week with flower petals, or bath bombs, or something like that.

Last year for my birthday I spent the morning making my birthday cake, and while it was a lot of work, I kind of really enjoyed it. It was the first time I'd needed to make my own birthday treat. I think that my new tradition will be making a birthday treat. So this time, I made creme brûlée. 




My mom came over and hung out with me until we could go to a late lunch with my little sister.

I was supposed to go to dinner with Brian, but instead, I was too full from lunch still. All that I wanted was a salad. So my sweet husband let me make a salad and stay home and made himself quinoa. 

We went and saw the new Spider-Man and then came home and ate the creme brûlée. 




I was spoiled rotten. My friends and family all made me feel so loved. I'm especially grateful to my husband who made my day so special. He made me feel like a princess. Also, I love that Brian put my presents underneath our Christmas tree. 

I hope everyone has the happiest day and that you feel as special as you are. Thank you for reading :)
