I apologize for not having my TBT up yesterday as usual. I try to keep everything on schedule but as some of you may know, yesterday was my birthday, woo hoo. In honor of that, my TBT will be about my birthday last year.
I remember it clearly. I was pregnant with my little boy and I couldn’t have been happier. I remember thinking about how happy I was to be pregnant and how I couldn’t wait to meet my baby. Also about how this birthday, my baby would be with me. I was about four months pregnant and the morning sickness was kicking my butt. For me it would come on suddenly and with a vengeance. The only thing that helped my morning sickness, which occurred any time of the day, was drinking ginger ale and avoiding greasy foods as well as limiting the amount of stress I was dealing with. Well the dealing with the stress was stressful, causing me even more stress. Vicious cycle and I was caught in it. My job at the time, while fulfilling was also very stressful. I decided to continue going to yoga to see if it would help relax me and, as always, it did. Yoga was wonderful for my body and mind. I need to start yoga again. I did things that relaxed me like going to the beach, the pool, the park and shopping; retail therapy at its finest. On my birthday last year we had a bbq and sat outside enjoying each other’s company, the good food, and great weather.
This year I was blessed with having my little guy by my side on my birthday. I can confidently say that just having him with me has made this birthday the best birthday I have ever had. Just looking into his eyes fills me with more love and joy than I ever thought possible. This year we spent a relaxing day with home cooked meals, made with love by my honey. We went out and did a little bit of shopping, watched movies, and played family board games. Just having my family by my side was all I needed to make this year great. These two birthdays will always hold a special place in my heart.
