Although it was not planned, this week has turned into a bit of a Birthday Week for me :) It has been an amazing week so far and if all goes as planned, by the time I go to sleep on Monday, I will have seen 95 percent of the people who mean the most to me in this world in just 8 days!!! How lucky is that?!?!?!
This week has been filled with fun adventures, surprises, birthday parties, lots of snuggles with my favorite little people, family, good friends and there is so much more to come. A day at the beach, time at the zoo, playdates with friends, a father/daughter Red Sox game, brunch with my best friend Lauren, special gifts and the most beautiful birthday card I have ever received. This weekend will be filled with family, friends and a special friend from college I haven't seen in many years! Then Monday I get to spend some quality time with my very close friend Sarah....so excited!!
This birthday week has been such a great reminder for me of how blessed I am. I am surrounded by the most thoughtful and loving people and I thank God for them every day. They are people who make me a better person, people who help keep me grounded, people who give me hugs for no reason, people who fill me with so much joy.....I am so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing and inspiring people.
Happy Birthday Mom! Thanks for having me on your birthday and showering me with so much love and kindness. Laura, Kristen and I love you so much and appreciate all that you do for us. You have our vote for worlds best mother!!!
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
