It’s hard to believe, but Birthday Month 2015 is here! This blog was actually a product of last year’s birthday month and though I haven’t always been as faithful to it as I would like, I have experienced a lot of happiness in the writing of it and am looking forward to another year of the fun! Thank you, dear readers, who have joined me along the way!
If you weren’t with me last birthday month, then I’ll step back and explain that while I’ve always been fond of my Fall birthday, as I’ve grown older I’ve gone from a day, to a week, and now to a whole month of celebration!
I’d like to think that it’s not because I’m a youngest child and/or overly vain. Rather, it stems from something of the opposite. I’m kind of a work-a-holic and I don’t often take as much time as I should for self-care or to be with friends and family. So during birthday month, I make a really conscious effort to do something special to mark each day of the month. Last year doing so left me with so many great memories and time spent with the ones I love.
This year birthday month will be a bit more hectic. I’m headed out of town for a while for my best friend’s wedding, which I’m really looking forward to. However, travel- especially across the country travel- can be a bit wearying. I think though that this just means that it will be more important than ever to be very intentional about each day. Here’s to September!
