Happy {belated} Birthday to...me!

I had a mommy-brain moment (more like mommy-brain month) in February. Being preoccupied with a growing little man, his upcoming first birthday, and blog-goodness, I'd completely forgotten that it was close to my own birthday. So close, in fact, that on Feb. 29th it hit me for the first time that I had less than 24 hours to enjoy year #26 before the new one moved in.

I think this year, for the first time, I realize why adults never really celebrated birthdays in our family while we were growing up. Sure, we'd have immediate family over for cake, ice cream, and a card or two. But nothing really big, parties and celebrations are for the youth. Oi, now I feel old!

Here are the lovely, thoughtful goodies I received from family:

Two beautiful cards, a chocolate rose, and a Magic: The Gathering fat pack (<--- Nerd momma)

Super-adorable mug from my mom with Jace's picture on it!

I just had to take a few pictures of the card Jace "got" me:
Regular card-sized. 
Opened up...

Now in three parts...

So cute! (and big!)
Thanks to everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, it was a great day!  <3
