Today, friends I am 29.
I feel like I should have some sort of profound thoughts to hold forth on. Perhaps the lessons learned during the golden birthday year? Reflections on my first birthday as a mama?
Above all things, this year I have become gentler. I have tried to be kinder to me. I have tried to be kinder to others.
We spent the weekend replenishing our La Croix stores, care of a special delivery of 15 can packs to ALDI. #blessed.
This morning, Brady and I celebrated year four at Lake Harriet.
Critter blessed us with a family-wide afternoon nap, which we have badly needed.
I went on an expedition to Target and tried to source some new things that would expand my wardrobe. I ended up with cardigans and breton-striped tops and the things I thought were experimental will be returned to the store, so let’s just say now that nothing is changing.
We went on a
date birthday dinner birthday dinner-date and tried TERZO, another new-to-us restaurant. We actually relaxed. It sort of felt…normal? Someday we’ll go on another one.
I received a most excellent assortment of gifts: A pair of gold-beaded Minnetonka Moccasins, the rest of the June Lane china I needed in order to complete my china set. Three of my favorite movies that we have never owned: Twister, Remember The Titans, and Independence Day. A book of photos from our vacations of me taking pictures of things.
It was all quite nice. So this is how we start the 29th year.
