Aging has always scared me - I am a worrywart! I worry about any and everything that I can find to worry about. Will it do me any good to worry? No but I can't help myself. I'm actually much better than I used to be and that's scary because I'm still pretty bad!
But as for getting older I worry about the things that inevitably usually come with aging. I worry about saggy skin - I worry about wrinkles - I worry about heart problems that it seems like most of America deals with now as they age - I worry about cancer - I worry about being feeble and dying. I am probably worrying myself into an early grave as I type.
So I'm going to try to go through this day and not think about next year - because it's not 29 that upsets me it's 30 and 40 and 50 and 60 and so on.
We celebrated my birthday with my mom last week because she's out of town right now - We haven't been to the beach in a couple of years now - in fact we haven't been since Allie has been born. Things have been so busy and we haven't had the time or the money to go for a long period of time. This year I decided I wanted to get Allie on the beach so badly that we had to find a way. Well worry not because mom took care of it :) She did a combo birthday gift for David and I and purchased our hotel for a long weekend away at the beach. Can't wait and neither can my camera!!!!!!!!!
Saturday we got together with my dad and mom and had a tasty dinner and then one of my favorite cakes ever - Brown Front Cake! If you haven't had it then you must try it!!!! I also got these beautiful beautiful perfect bowls that my Daddy made. I am so lucky to get to benefit from his talents!!!! I'm loving all the stuff in my kitchen he has made for me. Just check them out - they are gorgeous!!!!!! Now I just have to decide what to spend my birthday money on :)
This rustic looking side is one of my FAVORITE things about these bowls. Where the knots were and how it shows through. I got a peppermill right when he started making things and it had a few knots in the wood - he filled them in and I was thinking how cool it would have been to have them left like they were. Then with my salt grinder he left them as they were and I was inlove!!!! Love how he left them on these bowls - seriously my kids wanted to eat cereal out of them and I said - HaHa um......NO!
