5-25-75


I turn 35 today. I don't feel 35.

Where did the last five years go?

A few weeks after my 29th birthday, I met the man who would become my husband. Two days before I turned 30, my husband proposed to me.  On my 30th birthday, we were in Disneyland.  A few months after my 31st birthday, I got married.  Three months after my 32nd birthday, I got pregnant.  One week before my 33rd birthday, I had my baby. One week before my 34th birthday, my baby turned one.  And now he is two, I am 35 and I have had six wonderful years with my husband.

Whew.

If I am lucky, I am about halfway through my life right now. I hope I will have many more years to come because there is so much I still want to do and experience.  Every day is a blessing.

This August, I will have been blogging for seven years. Thank you for letting me share my life and interests with all of you.

(This is a picture of me wearing a chicken hat at this year's Petaluma Butter and Egg Day Parade. It is a reminder to myself to always keep a sense of humor and whimsy and to always be able to laugh at myself)

Happy Birthday Amy, but now I feel old again as my daughter turned 35 in March...LOL (I guess 1975 was a good year!)

Happy belated birthday, Amy! This is a little bit surprising, that your birthday is five days after mine! I love how you say thanks for everything good in your life. Now you have to tell, did you get any books for your birthday? :-)

Thank you for the birthday wishes, Friends!

Susan--I got cookbooks! Two I have been wanting for awhile: ARTISAN BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY and MAKE IT FAST, COOK IT SLOW. Can't wait to try them!
