Today marks my 31st year in this world!!! Happy birthday to me. Today, I am very grateful that I don't have a nasty cold anymore (just a runny nose). I am grateful for a wonderful family, with a husband who loves me and appreciates me despite my short-comings (I don't like to cook, I don't like to do dishes, and I don't do windows, nor bathrooms--please don't ask what I do like to do, hahaha, poor guy!). I am also grateful for my two little treasures--little Nyah and Bryant. They are my life. As I get older, the only thing I notice is that they are growing, little Nyah is big, Bryant is almost my height (alright, so I am short!). I am very blessed.
Last year, when I turned 30, I wanted to make some changes in my life and I did them. Today, marks the one year since I got my driver's license. It has been one of the greatest things I have done for myself. I have freedom that I didn't use to have. Also, due to me getting my license, I was able to start going to the gym. Today, marks 1 year since I started going to the gym at least 3 times a week, and I have missed only three weeks due to illness but other than that, I have gone and loved every minute of it. I am very happy with the changes that I see in my body. Career-wise, I haven't done anything spectacular, but I do have my little part-time job and I am grateful for that and the experience is providing me.
Overall, I am in a very happy moment of my life. I enjoy who I am becoming and I look forward to who I will become. This next year's goals are simple: love my children and help them know that they are loved and appreciated, let hubby know that he is the best hubby in the world (because it is the truth), bike at least three centuries, run a marathon and a few halves, do a few tri's, and possibly do a relay for Lotoja. Sounds easy enough...lol.
Happy birthday to me :). Thank you Mom for bringing me into this world and for giving me a chance to experience life.
Pictures: Little booties I am making for a special little niece who will be coming at the beginning of next year. I am planning on making lots more. Pattern I am following is the Saartje Booties. If you have little bits of Koigu sock yarn left over, contact me, I am interested in purchasing little bits to make little booties.
Side note: If you have a little button like the pink rosette (on the variegated booties) let me know, I purchased these a long time ago at Joann's and I went yesterday to pick up more and they didn't have them, so I will either have to change the buttons or find 1 more button. Silly me, I should have waited to put them on until I had found the 4th!
