So I turned 34 this past week. THIRTY-FOUR! I threw myself a little party. Of course it was not really for me but for these kiddo’s of mine. Funny how when you become a mom nothing is ever just yours…even your birthday.We kept it really simple. We just ordered out pizza and had a picnic by the pumpkin patch in the back of the trailer. Funny how just a little picnic in the trailer is such a treat.Thankfully a friend of mine surprised me with a cake. I’m so glad because I wasn’t planning on making one for myself. I just have been too busy sewing for this. The cake could not have been more perfect for our picnic party. How pretty are those flowers? We planned on picking our pumpkins that night but with so few we decided to wait. I’m secretly hoping that one day I will wake up and see pupkins overflowing the patch. In all, it was the perfect 34th birthday.And no, I didn’t get to blow out my birthday candles either. So will my birthday wish come true or not?And what if they blew out my candles before I was even able to make a wish?
