This weekend I will be celebrating my birthday! I can't believe it's been almost one year since I last celebrated with friends and family. A lot has happened over the last year, some of it a little crazy, some of it a bit more exciting but the best thing was our miracle baby girl. The other accomplishment over the last 12 months was quitting smoking. I remember putting out my last cigarette around 3 AM last year and telling myself this is it, I quit and I haven't had a cigarette since then.
Last year's celebration was a little expensive so this year I decided to mix things up a bit. We will be celebrating my birthday at my parent's house. I wanted a party at her house so everyone can and see and meet the baby. I mailed out invitations to 26 people and 19 will be joining us. It will be a formal dinner with lots of wine and champagne. I told mom to surprise me with either chocolate or carrot cake. I want to make this year extra special since this is the first birthday I will be celebrating with my daughter.
This next year will be different. I love being a parent so I've created a few goals to make a me a better person. Last year I was lost, I wasn't sure where my life was headed but it was probably the best year of my life and one that I will remember forget. I hope things only continue to get better as I continue to get older.
As I look back I can't believe I wrote this last year:
As I turn 32 I'm feeling a little lost. We still don't have any children and I told the wife I have no desire to adopt. This is causing a little bit of friction in our relationship. I have this strange constant fear that one day our relationship will end because of this. For now I'm not going to worry about it but it's always in the back of my mind.
Happy Birthday To Me!
