Not my usual Sunday

I'm veering from my usual Sunday inspiration post this week because today is a special day for me. It's my birthday, one of those milestone ones—(yikes!)—and it's also my wedding anniversary. My family and I will be celebrating by attending a four-year-old's birthday party this morning ☺, then going out for dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant tonight. I think I might even let my husband persuade me to order a margarita this time. ;-)

So in lieu of today's inspiration, here's a video that reminds me of aging—but in a good way. It's Five for Fighting's 100 Years. You can find the lyrics here. Enjoy!

  25. Coming in late to bring you birthday and anniversary good wishes. Does having them on the same day help your hubby remember? LOL

    Life only gets better if we look ahead with excitement and anticipation for what the next stage of life brings.

  26. You got married on your birthday? By choice, or that was the only date available? Easy for your hubby to remember two important days in one. :-) Hope the day was wonderful. A party for a 4 year old sounds like the perfect celebration. ;-)

    1. It was by choice--and now hubby can never forget. ;)

      We probably wouldn't have attended the four-year-old's party had she not been the daughter of my very good friend. It wasn't so bad--loud, but not terrible. I ended up having a great day. Thanks!
