Birthday's are my favorite day and my favorite celebration. This year was the first year I enjoyed the day with just family. In years past I would create lavish gatherings of people near and far, but it was really wonderful to take time out to celebrate with just the people in my life, who will be in my life forever. Now that I have my own family I realize the importance, meaning and responsiblity it takes to keep it "all in the family". I am blessed by all of the people in my life, but this year I took one day just to celebrate what makes me, me.
