Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

When Your Heart is Full

This past weekend was really something special. It was a long weekend here (Family Day weekend) and also Valentine's Day on Friday. I woke up early on Friday morning to surprise flowers from my husband...it was such a nice way to start the day...especially since my day starts at 5:30 a.m.
Roses in the morning 
On Friday evening we made a special family Valentine's Day pancake dinner for the kids and we spent the evening playing board games. It didn't last long, the kids are super sore losers but I guess I can't blame them since we did parents vs. kids and we kicked their butts! 😅😅😅😅😅
Parents vs Kids Game Night
Saturday night my hubby and I went out for an amazing dinner just us two. It was a much needed evening out and left us so full that I seriously had to lie down in the car the whole way home - I thought I was safe with stretchy pants but apparently, my belly was too full and my pants didn't want to stretch with it.
Deconstructed Cheesecake and a Cappuccino! Heaven!
Sunday was another day spent with family - I went to visit my parents with my daughter for the day...and my son had hockey and then a sleepover birthday party.

Monday, the official holiday...I had to work and so did hubby so my parents took the kids to an outdoor family festival complete with outdoor skating, hot chocolate, and outdoor band.

It was an amazing weekend filled with quality family time...and while I'm always happy to have the relief of going back to work after these weekends lol I still feel like my heart is full and I'm lucky to have them all in my life!
