Today is my Golden Birthday!!! I am 26 on June 26th! My Grandma promised me and my sisters that on our Golden birthday she would send a golden locket for us because it is such a special day. Well....its official! My locket arrived! My sister's golden years were at 13 and 15 so my 26th has been a long time coming!

I can't help but be so grateful today...I love birthdays! And I will definitely be carrying on this Family Tradition with my babies. Not sure how I will be making their special golden day "Golden" yet...but I do have at least 13 more years (since Baby #3 will be born around the 14th too)!

I love birthdays because for me now...they are a constant reminder that God has blessed me with one more year full of many, many gifts! He is the gift that keeps giving...even if we are unworthy. And I must say...birthdays keep getting better and better, the older I get. Even though they are much simpler...they are that much more special to me!

It made me laugh too this morning, how much time has changed that is....I had many texts waiting from my friends this morning....all before 8:30a. You know you are getting older then!

Thank you everyone who has wished me well this year! I know it is going to be a great one! Happy Golden Year to me!

Happy Golden Birthday, I guess mine was last year, I had never heard of that before! :) Hope you have a good day!

I was totally thinking about this. So you got the locket? So funny to think mine was 17 years that is crazy! So cool that you and Ally had your golden birthdays the same year. There was nothing overly golden about hers. Oh well.
