It was my Birthday. I didn't cry :)

My birthday was on Monday. I'm 39. years. old. And I'm actually ok with that! I really thought 39 would be tough. I've had a rough couple of weeks, so I was prepared to be sad or angry or something. I wasn't! I had a very nice day. I had the day off of work. I had to get my drivers license renewed, so I tackled that first thing. Then I came home and read a book - cover to cover. I went outside where the sun was actually out (it's been raining a lot here) and did a little yard work. Monday was probably the nicest day since the day in the post below!! Score!

I've been struggling with running again. My allergies have been horrible, because even though the temps haven't been very spring like, the trees, grass, etc are blooming. And lucky me, in addition to itchy eyes, my asthma acts up! I keep trying though. All you can do.

I've also been struggling (again) with wishing for more, rather than loving what I have. I am very blessed and I know this. Sometimes, I want more. I want to stay home and make my house into the home I know it can be; craft to my heart's content; make my garden amazing; bake; pick my kids up from school; buy whatever I want... I could go on and on. BUT I have decided to stop wanting and wishing my life away. "Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee." ~Montaigne

On a different note, check out the little cuties I made everyone for Easter:

I love how they turned out!!

I hope you all had wonderful Easter's with your families!! Have a great week!



  1. Sorry about all the pollen and allergies! YAY for a birthday! Glad you didn't cry! :0) Crying on birthdays is no fun! lol

  2. Happy belated birthday! Good you didn't stress about it. Good luck with the allergies.

  3. Well, this is certainly a belated happy birthday in a good way. Just letting ya know that you won the antique ceiling tile in my cottage charm giveaway! :)
    Will need your complete address so I can send it out this weekend. Just leave your address as a comment on my blog (I will not publish will be deleted after I copy it one will see it...promise).

  4. Trish,

    I love your headband. I FEEL your pain. I walk/run daily and now that the month of rain (May) has passed the heat has arrived (95 today in NJ). With that comes mosquitoes and man-eating 'green heads' (flies). My choices are RUN like hell, melt or be eaten alive.

    Happy belated birthday! You are entering the best decade of your life -- when a woman is finally comfortable in her own skin.
