As most of you know, today is my birthday! I teamed up with a ton of amazing bloggers to bring an awesome giveaway to you all… which is in the process of being verified! Be sure to check twitter later today when we reveal the winner 🙂
So this week for H54F, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and revisit the past 5 years of birthdays. Besides my hair color, a lot of things have changed, but the girls in the pictures remain the same. I’m so blessed to have such amazing friends in my life, and wish I could celebrate with them this year. But nothing, not even thousands of miles, can tear us apart!
1// One month after giving birth (hence the balloon face), my friends traveled to Cleveland to meet my son and take me out to dinner! Zach was back in Afghanistan and this was the hardest birthday apart from him yet. Without even knowing it, Bubba was the best present ever I could have ever asked for.
2// Again, friends came to visit me in Cleveland! We went out downtown and had such a great time. Zach was at basic training so having them there meant the world to me.
3// The first year after graduating from college and I was mildly depressed; would it be as fun as it was at school? Oh yes, it was.
4// My ex had broken up with me 2 days prior to this birthday and I was devastated. But because my friends are so amazing, we took off to Cincinnati and celebrated my birthday there. This was definitely one for the books 🙂
5// Which leaves us with my infamous 21st birthday shot. I don’t think any words are needed here..
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I can’t wait to celebrate with my little family for the first time!
