I'm currently reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. One of the thoughts/quotes I like from it is, "The days are long, but the years are short".
Today I am 33
I graduated from high school almost 15 years ago
I've been married for 13 1/2 years
I've lived in Kingwood, TX for 12 1/2 years, my house for 11 1/2 years
S* is 10 1/2, K* is 6
They are halfway through 4th grade and Kindergarten
S* won't be living at home in another 10 years, K* will be learning to drive
I finished these wooden birthday blocks and presents Thursday night.
They are from the wood connection in Utah. My mom sent them to me in September and I tried to get them done before K*'s birthday, but getting some other things done before having my wisdom teeth didn't leave me the time to.I started out painting the blocks multi colors like this one here on the happy scraps blog but I just couldn't get the colors right for what I was envisioning. When I pulled it all out earlier this week, I decided to paint all the blocks white. I'm so glad I did. I picked out the paper in September, which was nice to already have that decided. The paper is: a walk in the park by echo park, it's such a fun paper collection. The font I used for happy birthday is pea missy. I also used some glitter on the three presents and am still deciding if I like it. Not sure I can change it if I don't though.
It felt a little silly to be finishing a birthday decoration for my own birthday, but when I wasn't able to finish it before K*'s birthday I promised myself I'd get it done for mine just so I could have it ready to use for everyone's birthdays.
