It's My Birthday




There.  I said it.  I'm owning it.  Not liking it.  Hoping I don't cry too much.  But I said it.  Today...is my worst day.  The hardest day of the year.  My dumb ole birthday.

But I have a bunch going on today so hopefully I can avoid the tears and embrace some goodness.




I can say for certainty though that my day will NOT involve Random Acts of Kindness.  Lesson learned.  The world isn't ready for that much kindness in one day.  I can also say for certainty that my day WILL involve lots of macarons.  {And no cake.  Because as I've been saying since birthday...I don't actually like cake!}


Macarons


And the best news of all is that tomorrow means I have a whole year to prepare for the next birthday.


So many macarons!


Are you a fan of your own birthday?  I used to be.  Now it's just a big ole sad day if I don't prepare and pack it so full that I am literally out of time for tears and wallowing.

Happy Birthday! It's sad to hear you don't enjoy it, but tomorrow is another (not birthday) day which you can enjoy...with leftover macaroons. Delicious! Hope you have a good day and perhaps it turns around.

Best wishes xx

Happy Borthday! Try to think happy thoughts. This is your day. Do what you want to do and eat all of the macarons that you want.

I am a fan because I am thankful to be here. My sister died at 49….. way too soon. Now I look at it as a blessing that I have lived another year!

Her's to another year for you! Happy Happy Birthday!

As a newer reader, I went back to read your post from last year's birthday. I can't believe you did all of that! For what it's worth, you totally motivated me to want to give more on a day to day basis. Smiles and kind words are free and sounds like so many of the other things were cheap to do. Thanks for the inspiration!!

I hope this year you are able to have a better day than you're anticipating. Maybe pink champs and donuts for breakfast? :) I'd take that with a side of pinterest :)

Happy birthday! I'm neither one way or the other about my birthday, I used to get excited about it, but now that so many of my family members that I used to celebrate it with are gone, it's not quite the same.

Eat lots of macaroons! Did you buy yourself something nice? If you didn't, you should, you have my permission!
