I got to be queen for the day because it's my BIRTHDAY today. Honestly, today is one of my best birthdays ever.
When I was growing up, I did not celebrate my birthdays because there were so many of us. The one time there was an acknowledgement of my birthday was when I was 16 and I came home from school one day to find plastered all over my flat clues to a treasure. The clues were written by my younger brother who was in afternoon school. I followed the clues and eventually found my birthday present. It was a watch my younger brother and mom had bought for me. I have such clear recollection of that day because it was such a surprise and my brother put in a lot of effort to get me to find the present.
Since I married, I've had many birthday celebrations with me hubs and kids.
I hung it on my sewing machine so I can smell the lavender when I sew.
