Long Live Birthdays


Birthdays aren’t about presents and cake. While both are fun and delicious, birthdays are about family, friends, the growth of family and experience. It’s a whole day to celebrate you!!!

They are to share love and happiness. If you think about it, birthdays are a lot like weddings. Party. Food. Making memories.

My daughter turned 3 years old this week! 3!!!! Can you believe it! I can’t. We celebrated her birthday with  her friends and our family. It was a great day!

WOW! I have a 3 year old daughter.!!! Ahhh. When did this happen?   OK, I know when it happened, I just can’t believe I’ve been a Mum for 3 years. Time has flown by so quickly.

I am so very grateful for all of our friends and family who always help to make these celebrations so memorable. For making my daughter feel so loved. I feel so lucky that my daughter gets to grow up being close to her family and that she has made such an amazing group of friends. A mother couldn’t ask for more.

I love birthdays. I love everyone’s birthday. Celebrating life. Celebrating another year the parents have survives parenthood. It’s not another year older, it’s another year wiser. I am a firm believer that you are only as old as you feel. Birthdays are magical, what’s not to celebrate.

I am the type of person who wants to make everyone smile, especially on there birthday. Weather it be with a cup of coffee, a walk in the park, a bottle of wine or a lovely conversation. Everyone deserves to celebrate there youth, whether it be with a party or treating yourself to a hot cup of coffee and a good book.

When I had my first child, I called my Mum on the regular, apologizing all the time. “I’m sorry for never sleeping, or listening”. I didn’t realize the effort she went through to make my birthday parties so amazing. To create magical changing coloured drinks. To have works of art for cakes. I remember watching my Mum make the coolest goodies bags for my friends. But I know why she did it, it wasn’t a requirement, it was because she loved me.

Between you and me, my Mum still does some of these things for my birthday and I’m going to be 30 this year. I guess it doesn’t matter how old I am, she still wants to make my birthday amazing.

My daughter had such a great time at her party! She didn’t have a meltdown either (YIPPY!). I have always loved birthdays, but being a Mum, they are so much better now. I not only get to celebrate my daughter’s birth but the person she is becoming. That strong, determined, independent girl that she is. I beam with pride and excitement for her, because of her.
