Today marked the start of a new year bringing it with some incredibly sweet moments. I love my birthday not for the gifts but for the opportunity to pause and celebrate life.
My day included lunch with a wonderful friend, Melissa Milbourn, who lives 2 1/2 hours away!
(Road trip! Yay!)
|Melissa and MarLo|
An abundance of Facebook posts, text messages, phone calls, and emails from family and friends
offering witty, sentimental, and incredibly thoughtful birthday wishes!
(Words are my love language so I felt nothing but love all day long!)
Time spent shopping with my adorable little fashionista, Lydia.
(Shopping might be my second love language.)
Who slept most of the trip (both there and back!)
|Love the sleep mask!|
A quick rest stop where we had too much fun taking photos of each other!
Followed by dinner with my Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Aunt Alice!
We had S'mores for dessert then found out today is National S'mores Day! Who knew?
Regardless of what the year ahead may bring, I count myself very blessed!
Thanks again everyone for celebrating with me today!
