The celebrating of my birthday begins today! It’s not till Monday, but birthdays are embraced with significantly more revelry than most other holidays ’round here. I’ve been content with no-fuss the past few years, preferring to idle in bed a bit late and letting the day just happen, but something feels really different this year.
The last time I felt like this was as my 28th birthday approached. I had a baby (gender and name yet undetermined) growing in my belly and everything else (home, work, health, family) was just in this smooth, forward-moving groove.
Copacetic. That feeling is back.
Getting here is no accident. We’ve been working really, really hard for the past few years to land us at this place again. I am happily cuddling up and into this great feeling with him and her and my side. All is well. All is excellent. There shall be cake.
